Well for those that know Red my Red Devil she has gone to the big lake in the sky. She was her happy but obnoxious self pigging out yesterday and today just gone.
She looked perfect eyes clear no marks just dead.

I actually worked out she was 12 yrs old I thought she would live to 15 but I guess it was her time. I am sad but not devastated I think because she didnt get sick but just died I feel okay with it. But I have shed a few tears.  I have had her from a timid fry no bigger than my pinky to a big nasty but amusing fish who I loved.

So goodbye my big girl. I will miss you ripping the crap out of me for the pleasure of cleaning your tank.
RIP Red

(((I'm sorry, Tink.))). A beautiful girl with her own opinions, she belonged here.  Wherever it is that the great fish go, she's raving about you.
