How do you memorialize your fish?

For me, well, i'm always taking pictures if the cuties. So for me, I gt a nice frame, and put their picture in it with the day I bought them, to the day they passed on.
But how do you memorialize them? Do you bury them, and give them a headstone? Or do you just flush them and never think twice about it??
Anyway, I wanna know!! :D

I always take pictures, and bury them.

My cuz keeps fish, and he stopped naming them because he says it is too hard to flush them then.

It's not a good idea to flush dead animals down the toilet...

I bury my fish...plant a little plant for them and carve their names in a river stone the best I can as a "headstone".

I buried Gunter in the arboretum at my school under a tree next to the creek.

Step one: Notice fish has died.

Step two: Take dead fish out of tank. Scold it for dying a bit.

Step three: Flush.

I think when Dionysus passes on I'll bury him beneath a garden. We buried red beard beneath a big old tree. I don't like burying them out in the open, cats tend to dig the animals up if you don't dig deep enough, and that's not fun. We had that happen before with other pets that had passed on. :(

I might get a big flat stone and paint it with a pretty picture and his name as a headstone. My family moves a lot, though, so even if I have to leave his body at an old house, I will be able to take that stone with me as a memory. :)

I really like the picture thing. Or maybe you could make a big album for all your fishies :) That'd be cute
