when a fish dies...
ok, so I'm pretty sure toothbrush has kicked the bucket at this point. My question is this: when one of your fish dies do you flush it or bury it? I've buried fish in the past but I was curious if flushing is considered bad form.

im very corny about it, i bury in the backyard under a big rock with its name (or if not named, its species) above it. but i cant stand the thought of a cat getting to it so i put them in ziplock bags. that will be an interesting find for someone someday haha

I usually put mine in a tiny box . and bury it and put flowers on the grave.
When I was about 6, my first Plecostamus died, and I kept it on my windowsill for a week...
Most fish deaths get buried nowadays though. Especially the very few occasions truly great fish have succumbed. though any smaller ones that die do their part for the tank ecosystem and provide nutrient for the others :D

Luckily I've only had to bury a few. They get buried under my prized garden specimens. When the plants blooms I thank the fish for helping the plant.

Mine become fertilizer for my veggie garden........Even after they die, they can still give you a little something

It's food for bigger fish unless it's diseased

I bury mine near plants in the garden. Like what aunt kymmie says, even in death, the fish can be able to help another living thing.

Burial at sea (via toilet).
