    Small fish like bluegills do not necessarily need to be filleted--you could cook them whole. However, if you suspect flukes or parasites of any kind, that is a bad idea. I'm sorry about your goldies....

    I wouldn't worry too much about your pH right now. If you're doing a fishless cycle, it's not killing any fish as it stands. And if you think about it, most rainwater in North America is acidic...

    I'm not 100% clear on what geocaching involves, but I think it's a lot like a scavenger hunt. You're given a latitude/longitude coordinate and you use your GPS to find something at that coordinate.

    Agreed, it was probably a planarian (Phylum Platyhelminthes).
