I figure it's going to take a couple of days to hit me. This is so weird. Most of the time I break down before they die. I guess it's stressed me so much with the others that my mind has learned to shut down to keep me from having more issues. At least that's what it feels like.

Oh God, speaking of everyone's fish dying, I just found Zekie dead literally ten minutes ago. I have no clue why, it just looked like he was sleeping on the steps of the cute little pagoda I got him. He was always a little bit sickly, but he was totally fine other than some problems with his fins. I guess he was just old when I got him. Goddbye, sweetheart, I'll always love you.

I'm so sorry! That sucks. It's terrible when there's absolutely NO warning! RIP, Zekie.

Thanks, guys. We don't have anywhere to bury him, but he's wrapped up inside a nice cardboard box we're going to put in the trash. I guess the body doesn't matter, cuz his little soul is already gone.

Well, I buried most of mine in the yard, but I buried Nina's body in a flowerpot and planted flowers above her. They're thriving, and I keep finding all kinds of life taking shelter in them. It's a nice way to memorialize any fish. I wish I could do it for all of them but I can't have a ton of flower pots cluttering up my patio! lol Anyway just an idea if you don't want to put him in the trash.

Our soil is far too hard, sadly. That, and one of my dogs would probably dig him up.

I'm moving back to my parents house in a couple of weeks, and they have dogs... I'm a little worried about them getting into my flowerpot... I'm sure they'll smell her. This might be an issue. :/
