yes I woke up this morning to find his very cold, dead little body at the bottom of his tank. I think we did all right, I've had him for about 18mths & this would have been his second winter. Apparently that's good in fighting fish years, or so the man at the pet shop said. I had to go there last week to get some medicine for poor little Vin as he had a bung, bulging eye ball - also apparently the fish man did know what he was talking about when he said that there probably wasn't much we could do for poor little Vin at that stage in his life but i got the medicine anyway & tried to save him... alas he's now somewhere out in near Morteon Island, I would think, as I flushed him this morning.
Is tomorrow to soon to get another :0) I was very fond of that little fish.
