    First of all I want to thank Metal for this part of the forum. It just came to me and Metal thought it was a great idea.

    Wednesday when I woke up and went to feed my fish I seen my glass knife fish just lifelessly laying on some plants. He was about 4 inches. I've noticed that he was getting more aggressive toward my loach as he grew. The loach is a gold do jo only about 2-3 inches.(small compared to the knife) Well, the knife picked his last match. He was beaten up pretty bad, went from 4 inches too a little over 2. I think the loach did it. He has a I don't put up w/sh*t attitude.

    hey sorry to hear about your loss it totally sucks losing pets. I have lost lots of fish in my life. I have learned from it and understand what needs to be done to keep them happy and healthy now. I try to house fish in proper size tanks and stuff and provide it with good water params. I look at it this way, they only have us to rely on to make them happy without us there done. I just try to do my best to keep things happy. sorry about your knifefish crabby-girl
