Well that’s $35.00 down the toilet.
Fishy!! Why are you sleeping?!!
Whole new meaning to “sleeping with the fishes”…
“Mommy, what happened to Goldy? We came back from a trip and he was gone!”
“Well Billy, he’s right here. Also, it’s time we talked to you about what happens after you die. When you die, your body gets dumped in a glass full of alcohol with a few of your friends.”
That happens to me sometimes and I haven’t even died yet.
I like the way your avatar supports your statement.
I know I’m very late to the party, but I saw this and I just had to share that watching our aquarium saltwater fish die due to an error the movers made with the tank traumatized me for life. In fact, I’m going to need to go preserve myself in alcohol just to forget this post. EUuuuuuUUUUUgghh.
On a scale of 1 to 10, I give it a 0.
Giving this a zero doesn’t consider the vendors whole store. Serious creep factor here.
OH GOD WHY.
He’s dead drunk, you mean.
Go home fish, you’re drunk.
I laughed at this wayyyyyy harder than I should have,
Agreed, feeling some serious guilt over how hysterical I find your death, little fish.
Friends don’t let friend swim drunk.
Just fill your aquarium with alcohol and cut out the middleman.
Sure, fill your aquarium with alcohol, and then when you wake up the next morning, you find you have a frat infestation.
Rest In Pisces.
He’s resting in the arms of the angelfish. May the piece of Cod be with you always.
Wrasses to wrasses…
I want a whole tank full of these guys. Nothing else could remind me of the futility of existence better than the faded, lifeless carcasses of tropical fish.
You must not have a TV.
Very cheerful. Nice addition to kid’s room.
Thanks but when it comes to animals in my drink, I’d rather have the tequila worm.
That’s generally the cheapest a single tropical marine fish goes for, and that’s if you’re buying a species that didn’t appear in Finding Nemo.
Yes, but these are DEAD.
That reduces the value, unless the animal in question is a mink or something.
I’m just pointing that even if the seller does manage to sell their pickled ex-pets, it won’t match how much they spent buying them in the first place.
I have convinced myself that the seller has an agreement with his or her local pet store to buy the fish that die of Natural Causes very cheaply.
If I thought that all the dead things in this store were killed on purpose just for these shoddy crafts, I would not sleep at night.
It ain’t dead, it’s just resting.
They’re stiff! Bereft of life, they rest in peace! If you hadn’t dumped them in alcohol, they’d be pushing up the daisies!
Their metabolic processes are now history! They’re off the twig!
They’ve kicked the bucket, they’ve shuffled off their mortal coil, run down the curtain and joined the bleedin’ choir invisible!!
THESE ARE EX-FISHES!!!
Yep, those are dead fish. Cichloids if I’m not mistaken.
That’s worse than tragi-crafting methinks.
Hey one’s a Yellow Tang – I love to drink Tang!
It’s an Angelfish.
I was going by their description.
(I don’t love drinking Angelfish. Too salty.)
My mistake, the one in the post is an Angel but in the pics of the listing, there’s a tang.
Which, of course, makes the jar full of both tropical AND saltwater fish. A BARGAIN AT ANY PRICE!
Get an aquarium, you two!
Well, maybe someone who could not control their salt water tank?
Whatever happened to GRAPE Tang anyway? That was totally my favorite.
Went the way of space food sticks.
Life just ain’t been the same since.
This happened at a house party once. They were alive for a little while. Fish really can’t hold their liquor.
I could’ve made a fortune working at Petco.
He’s just restin’
He’s pining for the fjords!!!!!
He’s not pining, he’s passed on!
He’s an EX-TANG!!!!!
This fish wouldn’t *FOOM* if you put ten thousand volts through it
He’s an ‘alf fish. Eric the ‘alf fish.
to semi quote Hitchhikers guide
“Whats so bad about being drunk?”
“Ask a glass of fish.”
They’re not dead they’re just pining for the fiords.
They are definitely ex-fish.
No, no, they’re just stunned! Yeah! You stunned them, just as they were wakin’ up!
Listen, you, their metabolic processes are a matter of interest only to historians!
No, no, they’re not dead, they’re, they’re resting! Remarkable fish, beautiful plumage… err, scales!
They’re pushing up, um, wait… plankton?
“Exotic and beautiful in my opinion”.
Um, yeah, that’s why *anyone* buys exotic fish. But pickled? I think that’s where your opinion diverges from the mainstream a bit, Sparky.
Also, if they’re so beautiful and exotic and wonderful, why isn’t the seller keeping them??
Too much Drambuoy.
Silly, it’s white wine for fish.
“Will be shipped without alcohol in jar, buyer provides alcohol to refill jar.”
So I’m paying JUST for the dead fish? Not even getting some low-quality hooch out of the deal? Gee, I can’t imagine anything going wrong with shipping dead fish in a glass jar through the mails.
I’m going to put MY dead rotted fish in … Kahlua.
Hey, just found The Mister’s Christmas present — $35 for 9 pre-killed fish? That’s a fucking lot cheaper than $60 each for live discus fish, the cost of keeping the damned aquariums warm and changing the water, and the food to feed them, along with the bother of gradually killing them himself.
This will save so much time and money!
Memories for the tanks.
The glass is a great storage/display idea. That way, you can save the aquarium for the pickled raccoon.
Or knock out the glass of the aquarium and put a dead whale in there. If it’s size-appropriate.
No just a glass but “a specimen jar.” The perfect choice to fill with yellow water.
Well, now I guess we all know why Rxe08 lost his job at the Petsmart.
For an extra $35.00, they’ll throw in Luca Brasi.
But they’re keeping the cannoli.
I thought for a moment they were trying to sell a very expensive exotic cocktail drink. I may have to start drinking for real now.
I’ve heard of Cherry Heering but never Lemon Tang.
But I wanted mine fried. *pouts*
I’m guessing someone lost power during Sandy and is trying to recoup losses from their salt tank.
Hidden due to low comment rating. Click here to see.
This person should not be allowed to have pets. I imagine some twisted fuck just picking up stray/pet cats and getting free animals from craigslist just to kill them in the name of “crafting.”
I see they didn’t decide to save them until AFTER they were in the toilet, and properly peed on.
tomato clown, wrasse?, ???, yellow tang, butterfly fish, assorted damsels, and is that… a plecostomus? I really hope that wasn’t in the saltwater tank.
wait I just went through and identified dead fish.. god damnit.
That was a fish doubly out of water.
3 weeks on and still no let-up in the Sandy “Hurricraft” flood which has inundated us with busted-up and/or dead stuff that has been hastily repurposed. I can’t blame those poor soggy shivering bastards but facts is facts.
Am I the only one who read the description as “all of the fish stink”?
Interesting seller. Their favorite materials:
Preserved specimens, taxidermy, bones, skulls, dead animals, dead humans, dead babies, especially 2 headed dead babies
What if I want floaters instead of sinkers?
That will cost you extra.
Yeah, it’s hard stuffing those little bastards with styrofoam pellets.
“beautiful in my opinion” in craft vocabulary = “has a great personality” in dating vocabulary or “cozy and charming” in realtor-speak.
im still creeped out the store has 120 sales
from the seller’s description: “I acquired this and other unusual items from the estate of an eccentric natural history collector.”
(more like he acquired it from the addam’s family fish tank.)
where did the plecostomus come from, they don’t live with all the salty fish. I wonder what the laws are about not warning people they are purchasing poisonous animals…fox face have poisonous spines…..added bonus??
wait…….not a fox face just a butterfly….should have looked better at the rotten fish for identification:-) no added bonus
reminds me of the day I poured ammonia in my brother’s tadpoles. He stole the money I had hidden between my mattresses so I could see Star Trek II Wrath of Khan…so the little froggies got croaked. I’m not proud…but I stand by the lesson.
Reminds me of the time my daughter poured nail-polish remover in the fish tank to “clean the fish” That was the last of them.
Damn, I could’ve made a fortune off the 5 pound* sucker fish I had to toss in the trash instead of flush back when I was in high school! Too bad I’m fairly sure Etsy didn’t exist back then…
*No exaggeration. He ate the other fish till we put him in his own tank. He finally died from eating a freaking ROCK because he couldn’t suck the thing down.
:O Is I bad I want them? I have a box of dead things.. preserved fish, frogs, beetles, and a seahorse.
Though I obtained mine at no cost, don’t think I’d pay for dead poorly preserved fish.
Do you know what is a perfect gift for a dead kitty?
A dead fish.
I can’t own a fish whitout him dying quickly. Never thought of keeping them dead in alcohol. disgusting but way cheaper!
