Thanks for the kind words. I knew people on here would understand. My friends all acted like I was crazy mourning a snail. My mom and boyfriend understood, because they understand me but they still don't understand the actual emotion behind it. Even if they are "just fish" or "just snails" we invest part of our lives, our time, our energy, ourselves into them. We learn their quirks, their personalities, their likes and dislikes. I have always said owning animals is the most joyous and painful thing I do with my life. But, I wouldn't have it any other way.
