My Pink Spotted Goby

Last Nite my Pink Spotted Goby jumped out the tank. I had him for 14 yrs and he will be sorely missed. He was one of my favorites and got me a spot on the AA calendar we had years back. Just wanted to post a few pictures of him.

Thats a bummer man, you'd think he would have jumped awhile ago though.

Very sorry, he was an awesome looking fish

He was very personable and loved to get his picture taken. I would have thought after 14 yrs he would not have jumped. I have some netting coming soon and I`ll put that on top.

I also have one just like him, I can't imagine after 14 years how you feel. :-(

Very sorry to hear about it......

Sorry for your loss Mike .

He shows how great of a fish keeper you are, to be able to keep a fish alive for 14 years is very impressive.
