Goodbye, Fish

This morning I found one of my fishes... certainly not alive.  It's not the one pictured above, I don't have any photos of him (her?).  I'm not quite sure why but I am rather affected by his/her death.  I never even gave him a name.  Maybe it's the circumstances in which he passed (far too gruesome to post here).  Whatever the case is, RIP little fishie.  Thank you for eating up all the algae and keeping the tank clean. 


  1. oh, fishie!

    we had a beta fish that lived for three years... r taught him to jump, and one day we discovered he had jumped straight out of the bowl. we were crazy sad about it, and also felt weird about being sad...

  2. It's so strange how one can get so attached to something you can't even touch. The fish that passed was an algae eater, which we bought only to clean up our tank.

    How fun to teach a fish tricks! Sorry to hear about your fish. Three years was a nice long life for him though.
