| || | Danio meets filter = bad
recently as i looked in my tank i was shocked to see one of my zebra danios had either been sucked or had swam into my filter (judging by the way he was facing it looked more like he swam into it) and i was wondering if any other danio owners have had this problem.
is it possible my filter is too strong? or does this happen often with these small fish (he's only very small, only had him for a couple of days) I managed to extract him carefully and he seems fine (no signs of stress and i couldnt see any injuries)
any suggestions as to reducing the chance of this happening again would be much appreciated as i am a noob in this area. I have an Otto 8 watt filter and a 15 gallon tank.
thanks in advance,
