Royce is a velvety black moor who came to live with us on September 11, 2013. 
Two months later, he got stuck in the suction tube as I was cleaning the tank. 
By the time I could get him out, he had already lost an eye. 
It was terrible. 
Now I know to be more careful, but he was my first large-eyed goldfish and I was not aware that this could happen. Despite my lack of experience, Royce healed quickly. 

In March of 2015, he was moved to the 55 gallon tank where Quicksilver, Lars and several other fishes live. 
Named after my favorite character from The Riyria Revelations by Michael J. Sullivan, Royce is a unforgettable fish who is a joy to watch. I am sorry beyond words for hurting him and I am very thankful that he has survived.
