Suicide or homicide?

Yesterday, upon coming home from their LFS, the Dragonfishs' were confronted with the dried remains of their small dragon goby Tatsu.

When asked why would Tatsu take his own life, Mrs Dragonfish replied "he was happy in his pile of DW, coming out occasionally to eat shrimp pellets or frozen foods. I think it's highly suspect that he would jump out of a perfectly maintained home. If I were you, I'd be investigating those mollies or ghost shrimp. They might have pushed him. I say they're a rowdy bunch who were jealous of his DW."

As of this notice, the ghost shrimp and mollies are being investigated as critters of interest.


RIP baby Tatsu.

Sorry for your loss. Gobies can be escape artists.

Thanks,

Apparently they are better than Houdini. We had the plastic strips on the back of the glass lid. Holes just big enough for the filter tubes.

I still think the shrimp or mollies had a fin/claw in this.

If I were you I'd isolate the suspects and interrogate them separately. I suspect there may have been a conspiracy.

Tatsu deserves the full force of the law being brought to bear!
