Today was a very sad day in my fishy world....my Ram female Pinky passed away. From what I can see it was from old age... I had the joy of having her in my life for 4 and a half years nearly which is double of what most Rams reach.
The above photo was taken just last night...she had lived so long I thought she was going to live forever....
She has always been Queen of the tank and I also notice today that all the other fish are looking for her... she was always the first one to greet me in the morning and could never be bothered waiting for the frozen food to melt in my hands in the tank and just eat from my hand.
I could write a blog about her and the funny things she did every single day for at least a year...she was such a character and an amazing mother to her offspring.
One of her funniest quirks was when she would go in the huff...if she had a fall out with any other fish she would really go into a huff like a human..she would sit in her corner pouting like mad .. she would be so grumpy at these times that the other fish quickly learnt that the pouty lip meant she was in one of her moods and stayed clear...the only thing to lift her mood usually was food.
Just look at that bottom lip!!! LOL Pinky in the Huff
She will be missed so dearly.... I hope she enjoyed her time with me as much as I did with her xxxxx
