    Wow, so sorry to hear. A real beauty there. Did it run into something? Or just exhaustion?

    The males were on her pretty good. I think she just got wore out.

    Yes, we have a 20,000 gallon pond. They have a lot of room to move around.

    Wow! She was a beauty! I'm so sorry to hear you lost her.

    Have you posted pictures of your pond? I'd love to see it!

    So sorry you lost her.

    I worry during spawning season....I have 2 females and 2 males. Usually my females spawn within a day or two of each other......but this year just one has spawned.

    My chagoi lost scales on both sides of her tail tube:(
