So about 2 weeks ago I lost my first guppy. He was alive and well the night before and when I woke up the next day, I found him on the carpet. He must have jumped out during the night. I felt pretty devastated, was really trying to keep all the fish healthy and happy. I feed them twice a day with top of the line fish food, check the temperature regularly and ice the tank if it gets too hot, I test the water everyday, clean once a week and I always check for any abnormalities like loss in colour, if they're stressed in any way, so on and so forth. Anyhoo....it's done now.
The corpse was taken care of for me. I was told by another mate, who is an avid fish keeper himself, that there will be plenty of fish deaths as I go along my fish keeping hobby and that I need to take care of the remains myself next time around.
Frankly, I rather not lose any more any time soon.
