God just doesn't want me to have nice things
I woke up this morning and found my newly aquired Scribbled Rabbitfish stuck face first in a pump. Then, as I was pulling him out, I noticed that my tank looked slightly empty. Low and behold, another new resident that I was hopng would become a long lasting member on the tank's HSA, was looking rather...dead; My Purple Firefish. Th fish that I've always wanted and just couldn't say no at Pecto, when they had him listed as Red...with the same price of $14.99. Anyways, this isn't as much of a memorial as it is a rant and rave. I'm very upset that my 2 fish died but howcome God mocks me? As soon as I start to look at my tank and say, "Maybe 1 more fish and then I'm done buying." "My tank is finally looking nice," something happens. Whatever. Back to the drawing board.
My Flameboyant "Red" Firefish
Hmm, can't really agree with you that you should blame god for your fishes deaths, not that i believe anyway. But I think you should outline any possible problems first, such as water parameters etc
It was a pump. They got stuck in the pump.
Sorry about your losses.
I do have a suggestion for you, and it involves a personal experience for me. A while back I was doing maintenance on a Whisper 40 filter and took off the strainer that goes on the beginning of the intake tube. I left it running and I figured it would only be for roughly 5 minutes maximum, so it should be fine. But low and behold when I returned from cleaning the strainer, I found one of my weather loaches stuck in the intake! Luckily the flow of the filter was lowered less than half, but he managed to get stuck. So now I never leave tubes for filters or pumps open. A sponge or filter floss placed at the intake of any pump, filter, or powerheads that have an opening with no strainer/fish guard should solve future problems with fish getting stuck in them.
Best of luck in the future! Don't give up yet.
it's not God.................it's the Gremlins...........
that are living under your bed.
sorry for your loss.
lol. I though so!
