Fish committed Mass Suicide (EPIC FAIL)
For the last few weeks I've been struggling with ammonia problems in my tank with green terror fry.
Every once and a while I would hear something that sounded like water splashing. I would look, and not see anything... I assumed it was a burp in the filter or something.
Yesterday I got home (from being gone 4 days) and noticed the tank looked... empty. I could see 2 where there were 10 before...
I moved all the decorations around, and didn't find the extras... I looked on the floor and saw a crispy dead fish.
Then I saw another. and another.
Turns out there were 6 dead fish on my carpet. :BIGweepy:
Guess I won't be getting my security deposit back for my apartment...
they jumped out.poor fish =(
Weird! I am so sorry for your loss, the poor little fish. I know that the profiles on a few of my fish read "keep tightly covered as fish might jump". I know that fish jump after flies and whatnot when eating but, the fish that do this in my tank are my Rainbow shark, which is odd as it is a bottom feeder.
Well I'm assuming there was a huge ammonia spike...
Odd, their instinct to jump out of toxic water was able to save some of my fish.
High ammonia- fish jump out- less bioload- ammonia stabilises
High ammonia- fish dont jump- fish die in tank, releasing ammonia- all fish die.
in one word -- ironic
Aw sorry...poor fish..
You'll get your deposit back. Rent a Rug Doctor ;-) Sorry for your losses.
SOrry to hear about your fishes....
What a drag. Sorry...
Update, the last two jumped out too. Now its an empty tank.
