To My Last Fish

“Digby, the Black Moor”

I’ve had an aquarium in my room for the last 10 years or so and I’ve had so much fun taking pictures of its inhabitants over the years.  However, about a month ago I had to get rid of the aquarium after my last fish, Digby, died because of another fungus outbreak.  My tank has had fungus problems over the years and I’ve managed to keep it under control with anti-fungals; but the fish would still eventually succumb to the fungus after being hit multiple times.  Since the outbreaks became more frequent over the last couple years, I decided to not take in anymore fish so I wouldn’t have to subject more fish to get fungal problems.  I also decided to give up the whole aquarium business after my last fish had gone to fishy heaven, since this tank would probably still have fungus even after a good washing (I’ve washed and dried this tank thoroughly several times in the past and the fungus just keeps coming back).  It finally happened about a month ago.

This post is dedicated to Digby, the black moor.  He (I just assumed that he was a he… lol) was the last fish that I had the honour of keeping in my aquarium.  Here are some of the pictures I have taken of him over the time he had occupied my tank.

    • Thanks! Although I kinda wish I had cleaned the tank first before taking these pictures, the pictures are all full of floating particles! XD

    • Thanks! There should be an “Insert More Tag” button in the row of buttons you have when you’re creating or editing a post. Its right beside the “Spellcheck” button which has ABC and a check mark on it. You basically click that button whenever you want that “Read the rest of this entry” link to appear. For it to appear in all your posts, you probably have to go and edit all your posts and add that tag. You can also use the shortcut “Alt + Shift + T” to add it in. Hope that helps! Fell free to message me back if you still can’t find it!
