Hi guys, little update, but unfortunately, my Sharkey has died today. R.I.P. The meds either didn't work, or were too late. I'm pretty gutted, but at least he's no longer in pain if he was before.
Quick question, I'd like to bury him, (might sound silly but he meant a lot to me) but Im not home from work for another 24 hours. How can I keep him until then? In just a bowl of water? I don't wanna leave him in the tank obviously!
Thanks

I'd put him in 2 ziplock bags in the freezer till you have time. Makes sure everything including the smell stays in the bag while also preserving him.

Sorry to hear. It is sad.

Freezer method ++.
