Exclamation Just lost 2 inches of water in 2 hours!

I was just on the forum when I heard my filter start acting up on my 90 gallon tank. I was kind of annoyed because it had been slightly louder since I took off the top to look for my fire eel. I went in and the water level had dropped several inches, so the top filter intake was only half submerged! What happened? I have unplugged the filter.

RIP fire eel
why did you think it was a good idea to keep going over the top of the tank
when you realized you couldn't breathe outside water?

Holy crap... It was the filter! The canister filter's intake fitting had come loose and was leaking!! It spilled all under the aquarium. But I got it stopped. Good thing I found it before I left for church!
