I finally lost my last living fish a few weeks ago, and today I sold off the last functioning aquarium. Of course, I still have many empties, and a lot of equipment, in the basement, but for the first time in many years I have no living fish in the house–nothing to feed (except for the cats, dog, crabs) before bed.

I had many iterations of African Cichlids–a period of a beautiful reef tank–and finished with one sad and practically unkillable Tiger Barb–I sort of went out of fishkeeping not with a bang, but a whimper! 🙁
