My Poor Nigel

My Nigel passed away last night. I really don't know what happened. He did not seem sick and the tank was cycled. Then again, I have no idea how old he was. If you guys remember, he was the fish with one eye and a broken dorsal fin that had been at my LFS forever. He was such a character. Always greeted me in the morning for breakfast. I really, really miss him. I just cleaned out his tank and I have this huge lump in my throat and I just wanna sit down and cry. I thought I would post here since you guys understand and my family of course does not.

No one can imagine the personallity that evolves from fish such as these- your family- nor my friends understand the unique character s these enolve into - Mine is "Punch" always greeting me, and crazier still, always wants me to make contact and pet him and caress him under the chin- he lays in my hand and closes his eyes- so I fear I would be all that you are now in feelings and memories- as I well up in tyears witrh the thought, and at the same time understand your feelings that are only genuine to another purest form of life- I am sorry your fish passed away and hope you retian all the good memories of good times.

So sorry you lost him. I know how hard it can be to lose a fish with no obvious reason. and he was such a pretty little thing. at least you had a good time with him while he was with you. you can know that he was happy and well cared for during his life. :rip:

So so sorry about Nigel, he sounds such a character fish. I can really understand how upset you are feeling. I am the first to admit that I cry buckets over any that I lose, they all have little characters, some a little more than others, and they can really hurt you when they leave us. Hope you feel bette soon. RIP Nigel

I'm so sorry you lost Nigel :cry1 It's heartening to know you took him out of a place where he knew noone and made a home for him both in your house and your heart. This would've made his life wonderful :heart
