Ribeye the Fish -- once known as "The Snarkiest Fish in the Z" -- has died ... TMZ has learned.

Sources close to the situation tell us ... one of the TMZ staffers found Ribeye floating in his tank ... unresponsive to various taps on the glass.

The fish -- only a few months old -- was given a burial at sea ... via the toilet in the men's bathroom.

Harvey Levin released a statement saying, "He was a good fish ... he will be missed."

Harvey's asst. Tyler adds, "Not much of a swimmer though." R.I.P.

It's cruel to keep a fish in a tiny bowl of water simply for your own enjoyment. Sad and disrespectful way of disposing of his remains as well. Shame.

you're not supposed to flush fish!!! you can potentially introduce unknown viruses and/or bacteria into the water system that are not treatable....always wrap them up, and put them (gently :( ) into the garbage. just sayin'...

Poor little betta fish. I do not see a light or heater for this little guy. With the proper water chemistry and necessary heat for this tropical fish, they DO live more than a few months...more like 3 to 4 years. Very cruel to keep him in a bowl with a plant covering the top. These are mouth breathers and must be able to breathe from the top of the bowl.

Rest in peace little guy. Poor Rib Eye.

It's no wonder! You Harvey Levin and your frigging paparazzi hounding him all the time. Who the hell could stand up underneath that kind of intense scrutiny and pressure?
You are just lucky that West Hollywood hasn't outlawed your ilk yet (I'm referring to vegetarians)!

RIP Rib Eye.
