    Default Sammy 35 is dead

    Last night I walked downstairs. Looked at the fish tank. Something odd i said to myself. Looks like one of my five goldfish is missing. Shouted up to Mrs 35 who true to form didn't have a clue how many goldfish I had. Had a look around the tank. Couldn't see it. Strange I thought. Blame immediately fell on 4-year-old 35.

    Well today I cleaned the tank and he was hiding behind the filter. Blood on his gill line. So I picked him out with the intention of a burial at sea (toilet). 4-year-old 35 saw me and didn't want him buried at sea. So he went into the bin (non recycle).

    So out of the six gold fish I bought 9 years ago, one has died of a bacterial infection (looked like a puff ball) and Sammy today......

    So four left, didn't realise that goldfish live such a long time.

    I had gold fish when I was a kid, but non of mine lived that long. apart from the dog,s I have had I think my favorite was a tortoise I found when I was 18years old. Strange to reflect back on your past some times. Thanks John35 for the Inspiration to do so.......... "oh" sorry to hear about the gold fish though.

    I had a goldfish (one of many) and he was in our tropical fish tank, so the water was warm-ish. I called him AMSTRAD - after my computer at the time (bit of a geek) And he lived into the era of laptops! He was 15 years old when he died He was too big to flush down the toilet, so i buried hin in the garden, with a plaque.

    He was my best fish friend

    Sad though isn't it John, we have one remaining out of three, the first died soon after we got them, the other two seemed to have some sort of close friendship going on, and when fish number two got ill fish number three would stay close to him to care for him, when he died fish three looked lost without his mate and it kinda made me sad for him, they used to bomb round the tank together and leap out of the water to let us know it was grub time, can't chance putting another one in with him because he seems so healthy and we want it to stay that way having had about ten die on us before, including my Blackmoor which I got specially because of his unusual look.
