Rest in Peace, Hank.

Hank passed peacefully early this morning. We got the chance to say goodbye to him, and when I woke up, he had passed. Hank is survived by his girlfriend Penny, and no children since he ate them all. >.<

Our time together wasn't that long, but it was wonderful. He loved to flare, and he made the most adorable lip smacking sound when he ate. He would swim over to me anytime he saw me and wag his tail. I swear he thought he was a dog. He was so curious, anytime I stuck the turkey baster in his tank, he had to know exactly what I was doing. He was a gentleman when it came to courting the ladies. He was my first little guy, and I'll miss him so much.

I'm still unsure as to what caused Hank's death. I know it's my fault for introducing the illness somehow, I just wish I knew what I did wrong. I wish I would have known how to save him before it was too late.

Hank was a really pretty fish. It's good that you got to say goodbye though.

I'm sorry about Hank - he sure was beautiful!

RIP fishy.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
