One day I noticed my Clown Goby had disappeared. I assumed that it was killed by the Six Line Wrasse and then eaten by the crabs and snails. Or perhaps it jumped out of the tank and was eaten by my dog.

A couple of months (?) went by and then one day my wife (then fiance) starts screaming at me from the other room. She had found our Clown Goby, dead and dried up, attached to one of her sweaters. LOL I'm not sure how it got there, but I assume the dog carried it into the other room and dropped it on her sweater!

LOL! Now THAT.... is a great story. Love it!

1. I lost my tikus pearlscales to a senegal bichir that I forgot resided in the pond for nearly two years. I was heartbroken by the loss. I wanted to sell the bichir but later on, I decided to keep her and let her reside in the pond.

2. Fish TB. Don't even get me started on this.

3. My comet and shubunkin suffered horribly bloodshot fins with blisters due to the pond water going 88 degrees Fahrenheit. Had to move them to a 10g hospital tank and do 3 water changes in a day. The issue healed itself overnight despite the fins already bleeding slightly.

4. Apollo shark jumped to another tank in 2006 or 2007 to my shock. If the other tank had been enclosed, he could have jumped to his death. None of the fish in the other tank were eaten fortunately.

5. Tank seams burst that I had to keep 17 loaches temporarily in a 10g spare tank.

I could keep ranting but I'll stop here now.

I'm ready for the pressure.
The drama and the pleasure!
If there is one thing I want to see here, it's HUMOR.
I believe I can fly!
I believe I can touch the sky!
I think about it every night and day!
I stand in awe of my body.

J/C- what type of 17 loaches were in a 10g QT?

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

The Yasuhikotakia modesta and Syncrossus helodes. They were 3-4 inches in length. Imagine being cramped in a 10g for at least 4-5 days.

I killed one of my otos by accident. I removed a seaweed clip that had spinach in it and didn't notice the little guy was still on the clip. Crushed him. Ewwww.
One of my clown loachs jumped ship and by the time I found him under the tank he was as dried up as a chili pepper and looked like one too. The sad thing is I never even knew he was missing!

When I had my old 30G, I had three Tiger Barbs and One Peacock Eel jump out of the tank. An enclosed tank. In the same night.

I was pretty freaked out when I woke up to 4 dried fish on my floor.

My 3 year old cousin got hold of my fishfood. Kid is too smart. she can open ziploc bags and screw open jars. And if she can't reach something too high, she gets chairs and stools to step on.

I found my pond full of food and water was cloudy. I had to net out all the food and do a partial water change. One of my betta tanks got dumped full of food too. I found the poor fish lying on the bottom, too full to swim. I thought he wouldn't make it, but thank goodness he did. I had to starve my fish for 3 days because of all the food they ate.

Kid is a bane to my fish (and the garden in general). I caught her drinking from the pond, dipping her hands into the aquariums, throwing bread and biscuits into the pond, ripping garden plants, getting a broom and waving it around randomly and breaking some flowerpots, shouting at the fish, and various other mischief. You just can't take your eyes away from her for a few minutes without something happening.

When I'm at school/work, whenever I think about my fish it's always followed by the thought "I hope my cousin hasn't killed my fish or herself yet..."

Your fish love watching you as much as you love watching them. So please practice responsible fishkeeping.
