it seems that the wording of my posting about the death of my little octo Bob has somehow made it confusing to some. So, I have revised it to be clearer:

Sadly I must announce that Bob the bimac passed away last night.

I put a rather sizeable crayfish in the tank for Bob to eat, but unfortunately I guess it was too big and unfortunately Bob took on a fight he couldn't handle and the crayfish killed him.

I was mad at the stupid crayfish for eating my little buddy Bob so I fed him to my african tiger fish.

Poor little Bob II. He was a good little octo.

is that better clem?

Stevesfish,

That's STILL got to be the most horrible thing I've yet heard of on this site.

Perhaps the crayfish was posessed by the ghost of the octo cannibalized by Bob II?

Well. I don't what to say. Bummer.
I haven't met anyone else who has kept Af. tiger fish though...how big is your tiger? I tried keeping a trio together once. Didn't work.

the tiger fish is about 6" he's just a baby. he lives with an 8" delhezi bichir and a big pleco.

as for replacing Bob, my first impulse was to get a new one right away and move on, but I'm going to wait a little bit. I had wanted to move Bob's tank anyhow, so i'll do that first. we'll see. . . .
