I think the person who gave you that answer was messing with you and laughing the whole time they typed it too

That is awesome.

I am wondering why you want to as well?
Good luck, it just seems a little wierd to me.
I agree, you should keep a nice photo and then bury your fishy. You could plant a plant over it and then it's like your fish lives on. =]

Wow. This is an interesting thread. What you could do is make a mold of him (Like a fossil), Or you can take a picture ofhim andput it in a special place. :)

I have seen one preserved in a jar, but it was at a lab that I saw it. I wouldn't recommend trying to do it yourself, but someone who's more experienced could do it.

Good idea! A plaster mold would be neat!

not too sure if itll work, have you seen preserved fish in museums? theyre in a liquid of some sort and they still look wrinkly. its an interesting youre trying to do but i think you may just end up with a big mess to clean up.

That thought crossed my mind, as well, but he or she is pretty unresponsive for a troll, and previous posts aren't very troll-like. Who knows!

Amazingly, A LOT of people seem to have asked how to preserve a dead pet fish, upon Google searching.

For me, I'd rather frame a nice picture. I think even making a mold, although a neat idea, is kind of an insult to my fish (covering him in plaster and such). Not to mention, I dunno if I'd want to poke around with a dead body that much! I'd just give him a nice burial, personally, but I do think it's an interesting idea.

I don't think this is trolling, nothing insulting has been posted, and they haven't responded much. Trolls normally like to stir the pot a lot, and I haven't seen much stirring going on here!

It can be difficult for new owners to find ways for disposing of the their fish's body in a dignified manner. I couldn't stand the idea of flushing or throwing their bodies away, or even burying them in the back yard where an animal could dig them up. Instead, I buried the fish in a flower pot and planted a lovely peace lily plant over his body. Whenever I see the lilies bloom, I think of him.

It's a much nicer thing to keep around and a much less grim way to see death.. it's more like a rebirth when you see the plant bloom and grow.
