Unhappy R.I.P Roger Taylor...my baby

Yes, roger taylor died on 11/7/10 and he was the BEST fish of any species in fact probably the best pet i have ever had and by far my favorite. Now he was a mutt veiltail, he didn't have any of that special finnage or coloring, no specific pattern such as a butterfly or cambodian just a classic basic vieltail..but he was different despite all of that...call me crazy but he was such a sweet boy, he would come right up to me to greet me when i get home... he was my baby. I was crying last night and actually ,yes, talking to him telling him over and over how much i love him...

I love you roger....please forgive me for pitting you to sleep but seeing you suffering was just to much to bear. Swim free buddy...

A poem for him:

We have had times of joy and times of sorrow,
in both of which you were there,
that gleam in your eye and that spark you sent high,
they always made me laugh and now cry,
and our fun has been cut short,
but i know that isn't all true,
because you still live on deep in my heart,
and for that i thank you.

(i just wrote that as i went along but it sort of is how i feel about him.)

I feel your pain. I too had to recently put a dear fishy to sleep. He is in a wonderful place and I know you took such wonderful care of him!
