In sadness, to respond to your post, our Rudy passed away last week having graced our lives for more than six years. He was a "prize" carnival fish, which I do not condone, but we gave him a most excellent life! He outgrew a 10 and 20 gallon tank, only to upgrade to an 85 gallon pseudo-pond. He was soooo cool as far as fish friends can exist. We miss him greatly . . . long live Rudy!
