Well, yesterday I was reading the Fish Poll on Freshwater Forum, and noticed you said you buried fish in your plants after they had died... Well, I too always water my house plants with my water changes.. This morning I woke to find my oldest mother Swordtail dead (of old age) she was almost 3 yrs old..She is the mother of all the other Swortails I keep now, several generations of them, and I felt she deserved a little more than a "flush".. So, my question to ya'll was is this beneficial for my plants to bury her deep in the soil? A house plant, or outdoors? Also, would there be any odor by doing this?? Sorry this is a little off topic, but She was a good fish, and I just remembered you saying that on the other forum...
