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.

RIP Layla(Harvey's next murder victim). He needs to stick to Sea Monkeys, a Chia Pet, or something. At least it is known they die quickly.

You couldn't manage to keep a betta fish alive for more than just a few months??? I've had a few bettas over the years, and they all stayed alive for more than 3 years each. Either a) you killed him, or b) you made him want to take his own life, which is almost like killing him.

P.S. RIP Ribeye.

Of course it died. Everyone knows betas are to be kept in very small bowls... That's the deal. You don't put them in 10 gallon tanks..
