I can not believe this!!! Bozo has just passed away, with no warning whatsoever! He seemed just fine this am, and while I was surfing the net, I saw him on his side by the castle and thought he was just sleeping. Then when Spot swam by Bozo just rolled over dead! I couldnt believe my eyes! I dont know why this happened, there are no ick spots or nothing! It looked red though right under his gills. This has the whole family upset! The children are still crying and I was too upset to even take him out of the tank so John did. I tested the water and it was not too terribly bad; 0.25 nitrite, 0.0 ammonia, 7.6 PH etc...Why is this happening to my fish??? What will happen to Kinko? Will he survive? Is he going to need new tank mates? I dont know what to do; I dont know if its my water or if it was just his time or if he was lonely for Krusty... Would it be terrible if I changed like 50-90% of the water to bottled water or distilled so I know it isnt my water? I am so heartsick, I dont think I can take another loss like this so soon. At least I know that sweet little fish isnt suffering and is playing tag with Krusty and Spot in that great big aquarium in heaven. Goodbye my friend, We miss you
