Cyrano de Bergerac (01/19/09--05/28/10)


Cyrano de Bergerac

passed away this morning of natural causes. He was buried in a proper fish grave; a toilet flush. He is survived by Megan. He will be joined in the aquatic afterlife by his former tank-mate Christian the Frog along with several other of Megan's late pets such as Spankys 1, 2, and 3; Jean Bob the Frog; Zig and Zag; and the Bottom Feeder.

Cyrano was a beta, also known as a fighting fish. He was a good fish; true to his heroic name sake (although much handsomer). He survived many involuntary fasts and was subjected to extreme conditions throughout his life. He was strong and hardy through it all. He swam by Megan as she went through her first year of college.

He was approximately a year and a half old.
