The good......

So most of you are aware of my tank set up... my fish love all the caves and places to hide and swim through. I have a very active African tank and my fish are all healthy and happy at least they appear to be.

The bad......

They are diggers! Recently I have lost 2 fish who have become stuck under a cave that has had all the gravel dug out from underneath it overnight. I don't notice right away that I'm missing a fish. :blush: :unsure: :( But I have (had) a lot of fish in there and a lot of hiding places, so for one fish not to come out wasn't a big deal. The fish will try to swim under the cave and get stuck and die there. :( :( :( :( :(

Now I do an inventory every morning when I get up AND I fill their hole back in every morning.

Lesson learned!!

Brooksie :kiss:

Thanks guys... Nicki I never had it happen until they moved into the big tank. Now they are in the 120 gallon. There was more gravel in there but we took out a lot of it with the water change the yesterday to see if that helped. They could dig pretty deep and this caused my lovely stacks to fall over a couple of times. We shall see if this helps!
