something tried to chew my glo fish
 
i just found one of my glofish had a gash on his left side and was having trouble swimming.he's in qt right now. don't know who did it as most of the fish don't have mouths large enough to eat one of those gys

Could he have hit it on rock, driftwood, or the filter?

I hope your little guy is ok.

no internal or hob filter.i use a sump.plus the in pipe has a shield to protect againt the baby guppies from getting suck in.the gask is quiet big he'd have to hit the wood really hard on a pointed edge to get that wound.the rocks and gravel are the rounded type.don't think it is ricks.plus i don't have any deco mostly plants. i think someone tried to murder him.

Sounds like a mystery novel. Hows the little guy doing? What kind of fish are in there with him?

kitten_penang 10-15-2010 09:51 AM

i took him out and he din't make it.when i removed him there was a large rounded red spot on his side.

Oh Im sorry the little guy didn't make it. I wish we knew what happened to him but I guess it will have to remain a mystery.
