Our beloved George

Everyone, I would like to introduce you to George and Herbert. George and Herbert are watchmen gobies (peonounced GO-BEE). George was one of our first salt water fish. He was my favorite. He loved his mommy! Every time I came to the tank and said "Hi Boys!" George would come to the front of the tank to greet me! Herbert joined out tank from Jody's tank in the beginning of 2009. they became Friends. Soon after Herbert joined, George started to get very plump! Well it turns out that George was actually a Georgeanne!(I continued to call her George!) George and Herbert had little baby gobies! None of them survived but it was really cool to see the egg sack in the tank.

Unfortunately on November 5th George passed away. We believe it was from natural causes. He/she was getting old and it was just his/her time. We will miss our gobie George deeply. Herbert will need to find a new love... but we may just give him some time to grieve.
