Lost My Male Ribbon Today

My two ribbons were fine for the first few months - gobbling up their minnows once a week. They both stopped eating a few weeks ago, although all other behavior was normal and they looked healthy. I posted a few messages on here, and was told that it was normal for them to stop eating sometimes. I was constantly worried, and came home today to find that my smaller male had died. I was very upset, although I had tried everything to get him to eat. Later today I gave my female away to someone who is better able to take care of her, thinking she'd perhaps be happier in a different environment (now that her friend was gone). I love snakes and I did the best I could - I don't think I was knowledgeable enough about lighting, hibernation, etc. My point is, we hear so much about not adopting a cat or dog unless you know how to take care of them. The same should be said for reptiles - they SEEM easy to take care of, but we should be aware they are living things as well, and we should not bring them into our homes because they are a "unique" pet to own or anything along those lines. Thanks for letting me vent - I've always been a very responsible pet owner. I just feel sad...
