In Memorium- Please Share
« on: June 28, 2010, 12:23:30 AM »

I am creating this thread as a place for people to mourn, remember, and celebrate their goldfish friends who have passed on.  Please share your poems, stories, memories, and pictures.  Here is an original poem:

My dear sweet fish has gone away
He said, "I'm sorry friend, but I can't stay.
"You may be sad and you may cry,
"But all that's born one day must die.
"For though I've gone to that Tank Above
"I'll remember always that you gave me love."
And so I dried my tears and then
Said not "goodbye", but "We'll meet again.".
My goldfish, my friend, though we must part
You'll be in my thoughts and swim in my heart.

I would like to continue celebrating my 2 goldies,  but alas all is not well.  Everything  they do is  upside  down.     They constantly swim upside down, they swim upside down, sleep, eat.  Yet they seem healthy.  Any clues?

Hi sounds like they have a swim bladder problem.  Try feeding them, canned or frozen peas withthe skin removed for a few days.
If that doesn't help the try 1 TBS salt per every 5 gallons of water and an oral antibiotic fish food for a week.  If they aren't doing any better then they most likely have permanent swim bladder damage and will probably have to live out their life that way.

I'd like to remember the numerous fish this family has flushed:

Fishy
Fantal
El Diablo
Morris
Quesadilla
Enchilada
Gimpy
Morris II (or Fatty)
Small unnamed Goldfish


Now that I think about it.. was that all the fish I had? hm...

R.I.P Marneus Calgar. I miss you :'c May you slay them unbelievers in heaven :'c

I cried for three days, starting when he was alive but I noticed that the treatment wasn't really helping :'c He was eating!! He wanted to live! Cry And I still couldn't help :'c

In case BubblesGold hasn't found this thread yet, I will post an In Memorium for Bubbles, who died in a tragic filter accident a few days ago.  RIP Bubbles, you were a good fishie.

Very sad and had a few tears when our little Blacky decided to swim to the big pond beyond.
She gave birth to a few more babies before she left.
Her little children are beautiful.
RIP little Blacky
