The Truth Behind Prince Charming's Death

Prince Charming had been in our lives for a couple of weeks, he was Emma's first real pet. He had developed an illness and Chris was going to do a water change to see if that helped him. Well, as he was changing the water Prince Charming accidentally flopped down the garbage desposal,which was not on. Being the hero that he is Chris reached down the drain and rescued Prince Charming. Unfortunately he got cut and started bleeding and died, the fish not Chris, shortly after.

As she said, he was already sick. The cut that he got was right in the place where the fungus was growing that was indicative of his condition. I do feel really bad that he died and that I may have accelerated the timetable... I did make him as comfortable as possible -- salting his water and adding lots of stress coat (both things you do for sick fish, for those of you who are non-fish people).
