This Is Terrible News: Fire Kills Thousands of Tropical Fish in Dickson

by | Sep 25, 2014 | Science | 0 comments


Ugh I feel like I’ve been posting nothing but terrible news today.  Maybe I’m just in a mood. This is really tragic, though. Early this Thursday morning, a fire broke out in a Dickson County tropical fish breeding business, killing nearly 6,000 animals at around 4:00am, according to office manager Donna Coone. All of the saltwater fish survived (phew). The store also supplied tanks, sumps, terrariums amongst other things. A wedding chapel on the property was also destroyed. I really wish the best to all those effected and a quick recovery from the travesty. It’s awful to hear about the needless loss of lives – how terrifying for a fish who’d normally never encounter fire in it’s natural environment.
