echo my Yellow lab Cichlid :(

Due to some horrible, yet unexplained filter accident, my yellow lab cichlid (Echo) is no longer with me :/

I was sitting at my computer and heard my canister filter make a weird noise. turned around and saw that some how the screen on the intake was off and the lab was face first inside it. I unplugged the filter as fast as I could but it was too late. All the blood had been sucked to her head, and er eyes were extruded due to the suction.

RIP Echo

I'm really sorry to hear this. It ALWAYS sucks to lose a fish.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...

Oh no. So sorry about your fish. And that was not a pleasant thing for you to see :( :(

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.
