I'm Offishally a fish killer

WHY DO I OWN FISH??? Cats are my specialty.

My filter has like a cubby hole at the bottom of it and sometimes the fish like to hide in there. But my brand new tiger striped sucker fish was in there for 2 days!! I kept tapping the damn thing but it wouldnt come out. My brother said it was probly dead

So tonite I lifted the filter out and poked it with a straw. It didnt move So I'm like great, its dead. So I take the filter to the toilet and go look for something to get it out. It felt all crunchy against the straw omg ew it gave me chills So finally I am poking it and poking it over the toilet with the end of a spoon and finally I just scooped it out, it fell in the toilet and SWAM AWAY!!! wtf!?? It swam all the way down into the hole in the toilet and I tried everything to get him out but I CANT.. he just tries to swim further

So I have a fucking fish that is alive and sucking on the bottom of the damn toilet, I've flushed the crappin toilet 5 times and I can still see his tail! I just delivered a slow and painful death to a fish that I SWEAR was dead. How can any normal fish NOT move when out of water and being POKED with various objects??

BC please tell me a story worse than this so I dont feel like a horrible murderer

I had a newt named Gus. He was given to me by a former co-worker of my mother's named Gus because he had to move. He knew how much I loved animals and how I took such good care of my other newt Dale, so he said I could have his newt with the one condition that I name him after him. So Gus the newt joined Dale.

One time, I was running late for school. I quickly threw some tubifex worms into the newts' aquarium for their breakfast and left for school. When I got home, I walked into my room and saw a hairball on my floor. I went to get paper towel to clean it up. As I approached it, I thought to myself, that hairball looks like a newt! Then I saw the open newt tank out of the corner of my eye across the room.

I had left the tank open, and Gus had crawled out, fell down onto the floor, and crawled over halfway across my carpet before he dried out and died.

I remember when it happened...it was the night before I was having my senior pictures taken. My parents were divorced at the time, and Mom had been over visiting. Her and Dad were saying goodbye in the driveway, and I ran outside, screaming and crying. Mom kept telling me not to cry cuz my eyes would be all red and puffy for my pictures in the morning.

I'm reminded of the movie Finding Nemo...when Nemo plays dead so he can be flushed down the toilet to escape and go back home because all toilets drain out to the sea. At least in the movie

I'm sorry about your fishy.

If he/it is still there....I know you've prolly tried everything, but even doning some rubber gloves and pulling it out? Even if you have to grab it by the tail. I dont know if fish feel pain or not...But its better than....well, the alternative.

I'm sorry to hear it Sicy.

Normal The Immortal Fish

I got up to go to the bathroom at 2am and I opened the toilet lid and THERE HE WAS!! Even in my half tired state I was going to try to get him again but he just quickly swam back into the hole!! Yes I did try rubber gloves. He was far into the hole I could not reach.

Honestly I just want him to hurry up and flush away! He's GOT to be dead by now.. its been 12 hours I feel so frigging bad every time I see him in there and I have to pee on him!

Have you chucked some food flakes down to him? Maybe dangle something on a bit of string or something, he must be hungry by now. Attract him to the front of the S-Bend and have a fish net handy to block his entry back under the pipe...
maybe?

The poor fish and you, sicy

Oh my god you guys

It eats algae.. not fish flakes. I threw an algae tablet down there last nite and waited.. and waited..



He has to be gone by now. If I see that fucking fish in there when I get home from work I'm seriously going to keel over.

And even if I were to catch him now, I wouldnt put him back in my tank. He's probly got sewer disease by now and will spread it all over the tank

omg, sicy.
poor you and fishy.

it's a bit extreme, but you could call animal control. they'd come out and help for sure. or call and see if they have any advice.

good luck.

sicy, i can tell you a story to cheer you up too. when i was little, like 10 years old, i lived in florida, right outside of cape canaveral. geckos would come inside the house and our porch all the damn time, and i'd adopt them as my pets. well, it never occurred to me to feed them.

so every pet gecko i had would starve to death.
