...r.i.p. lazarus von spiffy

My Siamese Fighting Fish, Lazarus, died last night. He died in his sleep. The King is Dead! Long Live the King!

He looked a lot like this one.

He'd been sick for a while, but it's still sad. Poor little Laz. He lived fast and died youngish. He'd been looking a bit sad and bloated for a few days. Now he's gone to that great rubbish bin in the garden.

But thats alright. I'll get a better one, and I'll call it Elvis. Here's hoping he has an unbloatable stomach.

you need to make sure Elvis eats his greens.

Aww poor fushy. I always feel a bit sorry for Siamese Fighting Fish because they're so solitary . . I feel like Friday fush and chups now.

My condolences. Fish tanks are like TV - there are some true stars worth watching.

sorry for your loss :(
yes Elvis is a good name for the next one... at least if he dies he'll live again :)

I'd wait for the autopsy report, it could have been suicide or plain just forgot to breathe?

Poor Laz - your new header seems like a kind of tropical, fishy salute to him....?

All nice comments and wise words

Elaine-Spirulina is on the menu now.

projectivist-Turned out that Elvis is red, but i'm afraid not very fast.

baino-I've got mine in a peaceful community tank with tetras and loaches, though Elvis does look like he'd rather be alone sometimes.

Lad Litter - I like it, very much!

Ribbon-I like Elvis too. It suits him, though I'm afraid his stomach might bloat again in a self-fullfilling prophecy.

LL-Maybe. He was pretty stupid.

Kath-Just coincidence. It's just a big Loopy Luau here a the moment. Perhaps I should have called him 'The Big Kahuna'. Maybe the next one.
