Unhappy My Rainbow Shark, Bruce

My poor little rainbow shark jumped out of the tank. I was looking for him for DAYS!! Then I found him dried up on my tile floor. I miss you little guy!

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

As much time as they spend near the bottom of the tank, sharks are known to be jumpers. I lost one myself during a water change. He was on the floor for maybe a minute and a half but I couldn't revive the poor little guy.
