Oh no... he was so beautiful..RIP Fish. At least he had 4 long, happy years with someone who knew what they were doing.

Thanks guys. I'm still sad but I feel better after having a good 4 hour drive home where I could cry without people thinking I'm crazy.

It was so shocking.. its like I turned around and he was gone. I checked all my prams. My nitrites were a little high but all the other animals in that tank are fine. I just don't know what would cause him to die so suddenly.

Hang in there...What you wrote kinda choked me up...and I'm an old guy! Losing anything that's close to your heart is painful...rest assured knowing that he had a long and healthy life.

I'm so sorry as well :( He was beautiful and lucky to have you as his owner. He could have fallen in to the hands of a five year old!

That picture of him in the shark's mouth is adorable!

I think its good that I went home this weekend. This way I don't have an empty tank to stare at. I think thats the worst thing about loosing a fish is seeing the empty tank. Luckily the Betta Show is this saturday so I'll be coming back to school with new fish.

I guess the one bright side about all this is I can get more fish than I had originally planned to get. Instead of three or 4 I'll be able to get like 5 fish.(If I find that many that I really like).

I'm so sorry... RIP Fish. He's been giving a lovely life, and passed on after a lovely life, so he did not go in pain. Hopefully you will find out exactly what took him, although I still think plain old natural causes.

Sorry to hear of your losses, Jackie and Stacy. Alot of people don't understand attachments to pets and even more don't think fish are really a pet unfortunately.

Jackie, I seriously doubt he passed from any one thing unless old age or that it was anything you had or hadn't done. Four years is fairly old for our beauties. At least he went quick and didn't languish in distress.
