RIP Raja the Lionfish

Raja was a antenneta (dwarf) lionfish that was given to me as a gift. He made quite a pair with the snowflake moray eel. I had Raja for almost 2 months. I left town for 2 weeks, trusting him in someone elses hands with vivid instructions. 2 days before I returned, he had died. I don't know how, he was buried before i returned. He ate the day before and was being friendly, following people around the glass as he normally did...

He will be missed. He was a beautiful fish.

I'm so sorry about Raja. He certainly was a beautiful fish.

RIP Raja.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

I was told it means "king" in some language. It's a good name for a nice looking fish :) .

By the way I like your signature

I'm sorry you lost him; it's always such a bummer to lose a fish. Raja was a stunner.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
