Know exactly how you feel, sorry to say...I haven't kept a ceph in years after my last tragedy...although we are thinking of a bimac in the spring...we shall see...I am very, very sorry though...bummer.
I had a baby die of unknown reasons acouple weeks ago after only a week. Sometimes there are no reasons. Did you check your water quality? Anyway, hope you try again! They are deffinately worth the effort and the heartache!!!!
