A week and a half ago my neighbor asked me to take care of her fishtank, for she and her daughter where going out of country for a couple of weeks.
Everything went smooth until today when I walked in and found the largest of the three fishes dead.
It was floating there on it’s side and was covered in white slime, it’s tail still twitched a little. To say the water smelled bad would be a great understatement… I replaced a little over half of it, but the tank still looks pretty fucking bad. Hopefully the other two tiny ones will be able to survive.
I’m trying to figure out what killed the fish, I am quite sure it was purely my fault me being the newb fish feeder and all… not that I got any other instructions other than “drop some food for them”. Water on the tank was quite warm, but I suppose I just overfed the dead one.
So RIP you bloated water animal and hopefully the other two tiny ones will still survive in that retched water.
Man I am never gonna buy a fishtank.
