GOODBYE PHILEAS

Well, I got rid of my Californian frog tonight after almost two years of nuturing hin from no bigger than a humble tadtpole.
It was a tough decision but the guy had grown so big, he had eaten every single fish in my aquarium.
That must be the nature of the beast, I suppose but he had out-grown my tank.
I did not want to evict him, but he was eating everything from neons to plattys, from tettras to barbs, so sadly, I had to get shut of him.
I was fond of the little begger but it was his time.
I caught him with a small saucepan which is being cleaned as I speak, he went quietly enough after so many attempts to catch him.
Rest in peace my friend
