My beloved Sosh passed on last night. :cry1:cry1 He was my alltime favorite fish. He had a ton of personality and was the sweetest fish I have ever seen. He was about 6 years old and had not been well for a couple of months. I had actually been hand feeding him for the last few weeks. Despite not being able to eat on his own, he always had a healthy appetite and enjoyed being hand fed until the very end. After a meal, he always loved to sit on top of the bubble wand.

My dear Trinket has been helping me and thanks to her expertise, Sosh had a good quality of life until the very end. :)

Rest in peace Soshy. :rip: I will miss you.

:cry1 There's really no words. I know how much Sosh meant to you. You gave him 5 years devoted care and he had the very best life with you. There isnt any more you could have done- you did everything and then went the extra mile.

May he rest now in peace and comfort :hug:hug :hug :hug .

Thank you sooo much sweetie! Thank you for all your help in making Sosh's final days as comfortable for his as possible. He never would have made it so long without your caring advice. :)

:rip: Sosh, you will be missed.

Sorry to hear of your loss JoH, I hope that your heart heals quickly. You did all you could for him, and that is the best gift that you could have given him.

Sorry to hear about your poor little fish. It's great that you had so many good photos of him to remember him by.

Goodbye poor little Sosh :cry1 You will be missed.

Thanks Chickey! :) Yeah it's nice to have pics to remember him by. He changed a lot over the years. Towards the end, he even grew bubble-eye sacs as you can see in the last pic. :D

I'm reallly sorry. :( You made him comfortable though and that's all that matters. He lived a lot better than most goldfish do and you took good care of him. Just know that and you'll make it ;)

People don't realize that fish are not any less companion pets than cats or dogs. And when they leave us, it's just as sad.

Thank you very much Bubbleboy! That was a really nice thing for you to say. :)

You're right. Our wet pets are just as much of a companion to us as their furry counterparts. :exactly

He really was simply amazing...the size of fish we all hope ours will grow up to be.

Thank you Amy. :) His nickname was actually Cheebee(shorty or little one in Japanese). He got that nickname when I first got him as he was so tiny and frail looking. :D By the end, his head alone was like 3" wide. :lol1

Aww Sosh was beautiful. I'm sorry for your loss. :( I read that you had him for five years? That's amazing. Sounds like he had a wonderful life with you and was soo loved.

Thank you for your comments on Nemo's passing, too. We all seem to understand each other a lot better here, it's a bit comforting :grouphug (compared to the people I'm surrounded by that think I'm crazy crying over a fish)

Yes you're right. Our wet pets have just as much personality and we love them just as much as their furry counterparts. I know you are heartbroken about your beloved Nemo. I hope you feel better soon. :hug
