My beloved bimac Ollie died early this morning. She seemed fine when we welcomed the new year at midnight, but twenty minutes later the water was cloudy and she was down. She died very quickly, apparently of natural causes.

Ollie had been with me since March 5, 2003 and was a few days short of 10 months. She had had many adventures, such as climbing out on the edge of the tank to visit us. She became very tame and liked to be touched and be rubbed under her eyes. At the beginning of November, she laid eggs and guarded them intensively. The eggs were not fertile, and she began to tear down her fortress-like den in the last few weeks.

She will be much missed by all of us.

Nancy

:( She will be missed by alot of people! I hate to say it, but I wouldn't be surprised if Ink didn't follow her soon. Her behavior has changed again the last few days. Very active.

Oh Nancy, I'm so sorry. I just PM'd you back, and then I see this. You did a great job on taking care of her for so long. Best wishes, John
