Goodbye Stumpy

21 posts in this topic

I only had Stumpy just under 5 months. She was in my bedroom tank for a few weeks until that exploded. I thought she was ok straight after that but gradually she had gotten worse and worse...it got to the stage where she was spending 90% + of the time floating upside down :( She struggled even to eat her pellets. She had a lot of life left in her...but no quality of life there :( It was a really really tough decision but I couldn't bare to see her struggling so much.

 

She tried so hard to stay upright when I was near her but looking at her you could tell it was a real effort.

 

So I told her to relax, and that I love her, and I will look after her babies for her and let her go.

 

I think that her swim bladder might have been damaged in the initial explosion, or she was injured some how and it just got worse and worse as time went on. I don't know for sure as I couldn't bring myself to necropsy her.

 

RIP Baby Girl. I'm so so sorry :cry

Thanks everyone :(

I didn't think I was going to be faced with saying Goodbye to Stumpy so soon. And it's devastating. I couldn't stand seeing her barely able to control herself though. She tried so hard whenever I was near her but it was so clear she was struggling. I keep looking over at her tank looking for her :(

 

I hope I an do her remaining babies proud
