Dead Fish....

I don't know what I did wrong.... He had a little spot of ick I thought so I raised the temp and did a water change. Then he stopped eating... and was all lethargic. Then I came home from school today and he was lying at the bottom of the tank dead... Does anyone know what I should do? Do I burry him? Do I flush him? I don't even want to be around him. It's stomach wrenching. It's gross. It makes me wanna puke. He's all stiff.
Thanks for listening

I posted this in the wrong section... Can someone move it for me?

Scoop him up in a net and bury him in your yard. Let nature do it's thing. Sorry.

Whats wrong with flushing? All my dead fish take the trip. Even the VERY nice ones.

don't flush him. D: get a flower pot, fill it with soil, bury him, plant a flower. that's what some people do. it's good for the flower, and you'll always remember him.

That is creative. I put him in an earring box with some gravel and two dimes. Think that's enough? I'll burry him when it's not dark outside.

I had problems with the neighborhood cats digging up my dead when I buried them... so I started having to bury them at least a few feet deep.

Take care of the water,
the fish will follow
