    I really hate seeing this list get longer Some nice looking fish have fallen by the wayside along the way, but maybe we can salvage something of value from it.
    Would those who have lost fish be willing to post some follow up info that we could compile to track how they died? Details on water parameters, temperatures, medications, symptoms, etc... Maybe we can at least learn from the losses that way and it won't be a complete waste..

    2 out of 3

    I have lost two out of three. I will have a full report in a week or two for the records, along with a photo update on my remaining Shiro. The Good News is, Murphy's Law left me the Shiro with all the personality.

    With Humility,

    So far 6 of the fish on our original list are also on this one.
    Some I had high hopes for that we'll never know about... Rough ride for sure.
