    Came home from work today about 1:30 pm to my aculeatus laying on the bottom of the tank curled up in a ball :cry:.This makes me very sad becuse he was very active last night and i saw him this morning swimming around before i left he did however refuse his food last night wich was not like him!I dont have any test kits left i have used them all up so i cant check my water i will more then likley take some water to my LFS to have it tested.I only had him a few months with him and the tank he is in has been up and running a little over 2 years.I just thought i would have had more time with him i sat in front of his tank almost everynight for at least a half hour just watching him for the past few months i so enjoyed his company!I am attaching the last picture's i had taken of him last night.:cry: :cry: :cry:

    Sorry for your loss, dutchcourage - RIP :angelpus:

    I understand that many of the aculeatus are older when sold - maybe it was his time to go.

    Glad you're getting a young bimac. He should be around for a while.
