    A sad weekend for me :( One of the most beautiful fish I've ever seen, much less owned, passed away!

    I know, he was "just a fish..." So why am I crying over his loss? I've only known him for 5 months, but.... He was big. He was beautiful. Long, flowing fins, waving like a flag in a breeze. He was friendly. He seemed happy & healthy. He was always there.... Until he wasn't. I just hope he didn't suffer!

    RIP, Sumo, my friend! You are missed!

    I'm sorry to hear you lost your fish :frown:

    I have certain fish that I would be very upset about losing so I understand.

    Sorry to hear of your loss Maggie, I know you became very fond of Sumo, I am glad though that you got a chance to enjoy him, I know we did too while he was under our care as well. I'm going to check FB for the PM, I was just on and didn't see any notifications pending

    Sorry to hear. I just lost one of my Shubunkin too. Its disappointing.

    To be honest, I'd probably be more sad to find a frog dead. I feel like I have even more of a connection with them.

    I hate to see anything dead. All the road kill bothers me a lot, feel so sorry for the critters.
