Dead Fish....

I don't know what I did wrong.... He had a little spot of ick I thought so I raised the temp and did a water change. Then he stopped eating... and was all lethargic. Then I came home from school today and he was lying at the bottom of the tank dead... Does anyone know what I should do? Do I burry him? Do I flush him? I don't even want to be around him. It's stomach wrenching. It's gross. It makes me wanna puke. He's all stiff.
Thanks for listening

I posted this in the wrong section... Can someone move it for me?

Scoop him up in a net and bury him in your yard. Let nature do it's thing. Sorry.

don't flush him. D: get a flower pot, fill it with soil, bury him, plant a flower. that's what some people do. it's good for the flower, and you'll always remember him.

That is creative. I put him in an earring box with some gravel and two dimes. Think that's enough? I'll burry him when it's not dark outside.

I had problems with the neighborhood cats digging up my dead when I buried them... so I started having to bury them at least a few feet deep.
