    Decided to redo my 29 Gallon today and discovered my adult male Apistogramma Trifasciata, the one in my avatar, had died. He had been hiding for the past two days but I thought nothing of it as the Angel had been chasing him off during feeding time.

    I'm glad I had Big Daddy. He was a charismatic guy who thought he was bigger than he really was. I'll miss his antics.

    Thank you, everyone. I know some people here liked him. I do plan on having another Apisto Trifasciata in the future, so this will not be the last time I'm going to have this fish.

    Maybe I'll name that one Big Daddy II.

    Awww, that's awful Zeez. He was a beautiful fish. And instead of Big Daddy II could you call him Big Grandpa?

    I don't think that would really work, since the new one would be younger...

    If I name the next one Big Daddy II, it'd be in honor of the original Big Daddy. He's the guy who had Fishlorians wanting an Apisto Tri.

    As I was making adjustments to the new rescape and when I was done, I stepped back to watch the tank. I couldn't help but miss him because he would usually come out and cruise around to check out the new rescape then come to the front to watch me watching him. He was my favorite fish out of all the tanks I have. Not even the Angelfish or the Three Spot. It was always Big Daddy.

    Thanks, guys. I'm already looking forward to the next one. OnTheFry actually suggested a name I like better: Little Daddy.

    I think that will be perfect.
