So sorry Emma. Thank you for posting the pictures and video. She was the queen of the loaches. We will all miss Marge.

Half the world – if not all, is with you Emma, in mourning about the loss of your dear friend. Marge still lends her personality to our hobby.

So sorry to hear about Marge. It's always tough to lose family members and I think after enough years even our fish become like family. If it's any comfort, you gave her a good home and care, that's all we can do for any of our pets.

Hi, Emma..,

My deepest condolences to you on the loss of your dear friend. Everyone here feels your loss keenly, as we were all a part of her life through the amazing pictures you shared of her with the world. Marge will forever be an icon to Loach Keepers everywhere.

There is nothing much more to say that has not already been said. We all know you gave her the best home possible in captivity. It just doesn't get any better than this:

I'm very sorry to learn of your loss. Marge has been a celebrity in our household and we've been trying to model our own loach tank based upon your efforts.

If there is a fish heavens, Marge is surely there, proud of herself, the biggest Clown loach in tank.

I´m so sorry, Emma...
