Old Faithful passed...
Hi everyone, I just expressing my grief here. A tiger barb that I kept for 5 years passed a few days ago.
He been through all my torturous actions as a noob in fish-keeping (including nitrite poisoning, overfeeding, etc.), but just when I mastered fish-keeping, and was going to start my first planted tank for him and my other old barbs, he died of old age.
The thing that made me felt good is that it wasn't my fault that he died, but of natural things. I learned that tiger barbs are somehow extremely hardy, and they truly do have a personality. When your near they follow you and they even signal other fish that it is feeding time. Dunno why I'm saying this to everyone, but thanks for reading and share your tragic fish death stories too, let us all comfort one another.
R.I.P. my friend.
