First death in tank
I just lost my first fish-- a zebra danio, and I'm pretty upset about it :[
I think it happened some time last night. I was counting up all my danios but I only counted 3-- one was missing.Thought it was hiding up again so I dismissed it and went to bed.
This morning while I was feeding my fish, I found it lodged my in powerhead, and I was so disturbed when I had to pull it out D:
I don't really understand how it could have gotten stuck in there when the suction is relatively low (it got stuck in the flow adjuster and there's some water suction there).
The danio never seemed to be social. It was often chased around by the other ones and hid in its own little corner... and never seemed to be fed very well, it always looks minuscule compared to the others after a feeding. Not sure if there was something wrong with it. Perhaps keeping a group of fish at odd numbers is a good piece of advice.
Oh well, r.i.p. danio :[
