Good morning,

Sadly, I've lost another Bloody Parrot. It was about 4 years old. Unfortunately it choked on a large piece of Romaine Lettuce.

I noticed yesterday the fish was swimming around with what I thought was a wafer or two in its mouth and figured it would get swallowed without issues. However, I was just getting ready to vacuum the tank and I found it dead, under some driftwood. I removed the blockage and come to find out it was, sure enough, a huge piece of Romaine Lettuce

RIP

Ken

Thanks LyndaB! I appreciate it.

I would never have thought something like this would happen. It's a first for me under these circumstances.

Sorry to hear that Ken. That is sort of scary. As much as these little piggies like to eat

Would have never considered romaine to be lethal.

So sorry to hear you've lost another BP this year.

Thanks everyone!

That actually makes 3 I've lost this year. 1 passed of old age, another passed due to aggression from another BP and now this one. I still have about 11 elders in the tank including my Silver Dollars, Pleco, Rainbow Shark. I'm bracing myself for the worst yet to come.

Thanks again!

Ken

Aww, i was so sorry to hear this! I know you take wonderful care of your bp. It is just a freak accident that you never expect to happen. Its a little scary as i to have been feeding my bp romaine. I am very sorry. P.S. I read some where that someone puts their romaine in the freezer just until it gets limp and they said it makes it easier for the bp to eat it. I have not tried this but i probably will now. Just thought i would let you know just in case you wanted to try it.
