Man prepared coffin and performed funeral rites for his beloved deceased pet fish

So apparently, a man in Singapore went to the extent of performing funeral rites – including preparing a DIY coffin and burning joss paper – to send his beloved pet Arowana fish to the afterlife.

The Facebook user posted the following in a Singapore Facebook group for fish keeping hobbyists:


In case you can’t read the words in Chinese, he wished that his pet fish would “Leave suffering and attain happiness, have a good journey/rest in peace. Grateful.”

The hobbyist made a DIY coffin:


He also prepared some joss paper to send his fish off:


And folks, this is what I call devotion and dedication to your pets.

SPCA should give this man a medal.
