Unhappy RIP Fishy

Well, today, September 7th at approximately 12:45, my big adopted guy Fishy passed away of dropsy. It hurts pretty bad because I was really attached to him and loved him a lot. I'm not sure what I did wrong, but anyways. I adopted him from another member of this forum, Vikki in February earlier this year. He was at least 2 years old, if not older. Too short a time period for such an awesome fish. Picture spam to show what a beautiful guy he was. sorry there is so many, I just loved him so much and still can't help showing off how gorgeous he was. The last 3 are from when he was with Vikki.

I'm sorry. :(

He had a good life with you, I will miss seeing that big guy around the forums. He has always been one of my favs.

Thank you doggyhog. It just sucks really bad. This is embarrassing, but I've been crying on and off all day because I really loved Fishy. I'm going to miss him so much. This is the only place I can admit that though lol most people would just call me crazy and say "It's just a fish Amanda."

i don't think you are crazy for crying, and anybody who tells you "it's just a fish" is mean and insensitive. i had a betta fish named timothy. i loved him sooo much. i had his picture on my wall! (lol! ) i only had him for about five months, and when he died i was sooo upset. i cried for hours!!! i am so sorry about the loss of your pet. Fishy was very handsome. RIP Fishy and Timothy. here is a pic of timothy.

I'm sorry Timothy died, peaches.. :( He was a handsome fish as well. Thank you both, I'm glad I have animal lovers to talk to. It makes me feel a bit better.
RIP Fishy and Timothy
