): aw... I'm sorry for your loss... Maybe it was something internal? I know that usually internal bacteria or parasites will tend to make fish lose their appetite...

I actually wouldn't recommend flushing him or burying him. Both ways, you can contaminate the enviroment. If you flush him, whatever he had can flourish and contaminate the water. If you bury him, a cat might come and dig him up and get sick or just contaminate the soil.

Most people say put them in a ziplock bag and just toss him in the garbage, but I've heard of cases where people cremate their fish and put them in small jars. XD I'd try and cremate my fish if they ever died ):

Thanks guys, you're all so nice.

My aunt said I could bury him, but I certainly don't want to get any cats or anything else sick... I guess I'll put him in a plastic paggy and then bury him.

Awe, bummer! D:
Poor Felix.
As long as you bury him really deep I think it'll be alright..

You could probably put him in a plastic gladware container and tape it up real good.

I ended up putting him in a little baggie and digging a deep hole for him by some flowers. My aunt was even nice enough to come out while I was burying him.

My sister was pretty sad when i told her. I had showed her some pictures of him and she was in love with him, and was really enthusiatic that I take her bigger tank for him.

Thanks for your support, everyone.
