Fish Died

My beautiful, most special boy, Fish died today.

I don't know what happened. He was fine this morning and when I got back from class he was fine. I did a water change on a different tank, got on the forums for a bit, then went to do another change on Damon's tank and when I looked into Fish's tank he was dead at the bottom of the tank .

I'm so devastated. He's been my boy for four years. He's the first fish I ever really cared about. I knew he was getting old but I thought there would be signs that he was going to go. I was just telling him yesterday that I was going to bring him home some new brothers.

I've never cried when I lost a fish. Now I can't stop. Its just like when my kitty, Mr. Peach passed (and I had him a lot longer than I had Fish). I feel embarrassed. My roommates think I'm crazy because I'm crying and had to go out on campus and bury Fish.

R.I.P Fish, my little ray of sunshine













I'm glad that he was able to at least have a couple months in the planted tank I'd always wanted to give him.

Sorry for your loss Jackie.....at least he got 4 awesome years and that is longer than most so that should tell you how well you cared for him......

Wow, he was one gorgeous fish. I get a little teary when my fish die, and I know a fish that lasted 4 years would definitely make me cry.
