Rather unexpected

Scarface, my sawback turtle rather unexpectedly died. I knew fish are difficult to keep, and can easily succumb to disease, but the little turtle fellow dying away came as a bit of a shock. I'll miss him, and hopefully the rest of the critters will remain in good health.

R.I.P. Scarface 2009 - 2010.

And my black moor fantail is no more either. After what appeared to be a full recovery from "witte stip", he's lost a lot of weight, his dorsal fin is pretty much gone, and his tailfin looks like as though something ripped it to shreds.
