Diego has died

Diego died this afternoon after 13 months in my care. Considering all his health problems, his longevity was better than I expected and as long or longer as many of the captive raised from Zyan but less than half the time Joe-Ceph has experienced. I found him still breathing but being attacked by (and ignoring) the urchin and brissles so I moved him to a container to die in peace. He stopped breathing within an hour of the transfer. :sad:

Thanks Tony,

We expected him to be near the end but he has fooled us before. He had all but stopped eating a week ago and had stopped his nightly tank walks about the same time.
