Spotty my 20 year old Large-spot Catfish

Spotty my 20 year old Large-spot Catfish, died today.

I removed him from the large quaratine tank, and moved him into a small 17l tank, and started to treat with Melafix and Primafix, a three day treatment, but it wasn’t working, so I finally switched to anti-biotics last night. He survived the night, and was looking okay this morning, but Lindsey has just found him dead.

I don’t normally name fish, and I don’t know why I named him, but he’s been with me 20 years.  I first purchased him from Blagdon Aquatics in Plymouth, when they first opened their store at the front of the new Hombase Store and multi-storey car park, in the green house dome at the front. (Toy’s r Us are there now, I think).

He will be sadly missed, so I’ve buried him in my front garden under the trees. (most dead fish go in the dustbin but Spotty was special).
