RIP Spot

Do you remember when I introduced you all to my fish Spot? Well, he seemed a little "funny" this morning sitting at the bottom of the tank. Well, we had visitors and when I came back down here to check emails, I looked over and there he was! Upsidedown at the bottom and he seems to have turned black! I won't gross you out with pictures! EWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!!! Now what do I do? He's too big to flush. And I don't even think my little fish net will hold him!

I wonder what the average lifespan of an African Ciclid is? I think he's at least 5 years old!! Was it old age? Something nasty come in the last batch of goldfish he ate? It does look like there is a "film" on the top of the water....tank need cleaned? Or is it just from him dying? No idea!!


Oh well, rest in peace little guy! I'll miss you trying to splash me while I am on the computer! Ok, so hubby just called...he wants me to take him out and bury him in the backyard!!!! Anyone want to come and help?
And does anyone think it's tacky that I'm making fishsticks for dinner????

Poor Spot.

I had two goldfish (Mary and Joseph) that I got attached to. Goldfish!

Hopefully, spending some time with Mr Cash will comfort you.
