Saying goodbye to The Beef. RIP Beefcake

22 posts in this topic

With the water in the pond cooling going into Winter I decided to say goodbye to the Beef. My favorite fish, a gift from a friend, weighing in at 240 grams at one point. He was now much smaller, pinned to the bottom of whatever I put him in, and didn't seem to have any quality of life. I appreciate all the help people gave me trying to fix him up and I feel good that he isn't suffering. Enjoy some pics and a YouTube video of my favorite cartoon character giving a shout out to my boy.

So sorry to hear this but I think you made the right decision. It's difficult to watch them live like that. Such a gorgeous fish and one of my favorite names of all times. :teehee

I'm sorry he never pulled through to a full recovery, it's hard to euthanize a favorite fish :(. RIP Beefcake.
