An Update on me AskMe about a sick fish October 4, 2005 8:45 PM   Subscribe

RIP Fish Daddy . An update for this thread. I bought my fish anti-biotics, but sadly it was too late and he passed this morning. I also bought a test kit for amonia, nitrite and nitrate and am pleased to report that all is well with the water, suggesting that I am not the bad fish-taker-carer I feared I might be. A little bit of nitrate, but it seems that's not actually toxic. Anyway, thanks to all who offered advice.

Condolences. Sorry he didn't make it. I had to put my cat down this weekend and it always sucks to lose a companion.

Wow, scacarbic, that was such a sad read. As much as I love my fishies, it's nothing like losing someone, like a cat or a dog, who loves you back. I still mourn my dog who died five years ago.

Thanks for the update, but the thread in question is still open. Shouldn't this have gone there?

He sleeps with Luca Brasi.

I'm sorry to hear about your fish. Thank you for letting us know the resolution.

I do appreciate these updates. I always forget about these sorts of questions once they scroll off of the page, but an extra reminder is nice, even if the news is sad.
