Fred was dead. He was no longer with us, he bought the farm, was pushing up daisies, exanguinous, pulseless, inanimate... Fred the fish, that is. And you get the message. :-) But was he murdered? Or were some other forces at work here? The trip to the Fluvarium yesterday was a wonderful success. By looking at various biotic and abiotic factors in the environment (water quality, dissolved oxygen, pH, turbidity, temperature and available food) we figured out why poor Freddie was pining for the fiords. We also got a really good look through a microscope at some of the wee creatures that would have been Freddie's lunch, had he not been an ex-Fred. Too bad he didn't get to be our lunch. He was a nice looking trout.
