cebosound created the topic: Lost a fish today....

I came home from work a few hours ago, looked over at my tank and noticed a large fish laying on top of the plexi glass. ... i knew this can't be good.

And of all the fish it could've been I was thinking "please don't be one of my synspilums" . And ofcourse it was. I had a couple of perfect (no fin damage) specimins. NOw there is only one.

It must have slipped up throught the top . there is a small gap in the middle on one side of the tank. I have never had a fish jump out of this tank. (considering the way these Acrylic tops are positioned, its not likely)

Pretty Sad.

:unsure:

well, you are not alone Ryan.... i came home from a 5 days trip to the
other countryside (from my wife's hometown) and found my 24 inches CKF dead.
i tried to figure out why.... i can only assume fungi, and over feeding.
our housekeeper bought some cups of fresh shrimps and dumped them all in
one feeding.

yeah...i know... and i am baffled by the incident...my water was in good
shape... 0;0;10@6.8pH... however, the temp went down due to weather change;
@25 to 26 deg C.... and the housekeeper bought 4 cups of fresh shrimps
and dumped all in one feeding... perhaps, there was an ammonia spike but
stabilized in time before i came home....

how about your other fish... is she/he lonely??? (synspilum)

Ryan, I'm so sorry to hear this :( I don't get why fish don't just stay in their water. Silly creatures.

Aww sorry to hear Ryan, if there`s a tiny gap they seem to find it.

Even when you do everything right bad luck can strike, and sorry to hear about your big fish too Paul :(

I feel ya, it happens to the best of us. :(

THOSE WHO REFUSE KNOWLEDGE ARE DOOMED TO FAIL.

WATER CHANGES ARE THE LIFEBLOOD OF THIS HOBBY. IF YOU DON'T BELIEVE SO OR SIMPLY DON'T FEEL LIKE DOING THEM, RE-HOME YOUR FISH, SELL YOUR AQUARIUM & FIND ANOTHER HOBBY, AS YOU WILL FAIL UTTERLY, COMPLETELY, & MISERABLY.
