RIP Stevie

Last Monday we lost our male barb, Stevie.  He had battled with pouch problems for as long as we had him, and finally he developed pouch emphysema around 6 weeks ago and we were no longer able to alleviate his buoyancy issues with pouch evacuations.  He started a course of antibiotics which were injected into him every other day and he actually started doing well for a while. His buoyancy issues went away and he did actually start to eat for himself.  Sadly though, he remained very weak and caught a secondary infection which which finally got the better of him.

We miss you Stevie!
