Nah, that was no pipefish ... I'll bet that was my pet Brook
Silverside. I was taking ol' Silver for a walk around here and
he slipped off his leash and was never heard from again.

He loved them 'gators, he did. But only their eyes he
would eat and leave the rest to rot!

If you see him again, hold out some Red Tetra Bits. He
loves them. But, make sure you wear dark sunglasses, you hear?
