A sad day....

I lost a female Clown today that was over twenty years old and probably closer to twenty five. The pair originally belonged to Mike(MGNY) who unfortunately lost his system during Hurricane Sandy. The pair made their way around other members of LIRA, John (BIGSINK) and Andy((LONGISLANDANDY) before coming in my possession a few years ago. They set up a nesting area in the rear corner of my tank and still were breeding like clockwork until her death for unknown reasons. It’s sad because now the male is a bachelor again after many years....
