Just got home from work to see my Phillip fighting to stay afloat. He's given up and spent a few minutes in my hand. I placed him on his leafs he loved to sleep on where he is spending his last hours. I feel odd attaching myself to a fish like this, I feel bad knowing he should be in a better place besides the toilet.

My fish has a sleep leaf aswell. Hes so dumb that he sleeps on the suction cup. Do you think your fish was sick ? Or just old. Well dont wory about him to much hes in a way better place know . Also just to let you know. The toilet is the traditional way of a fish funeral . So its more of an honor than a bad thing for a fish to be flushed . Hope you arent to sad abot it <3

That doesn't make the pain go away any less. My own fish just died and I wish I could bury him under a plant where he could go back naturally...Not flushing but there was no choice.


OP I'm so sorry for your loss..
