I continue to be amazed at how hardy these fish are.
My latest screwup - I was cleaning the tank, had everything out, including the tube and screen assembly which draws water into the filter. I was done, and put everything back in - except for said tube/screen assembly, which I forgot - and plugged the filter/heater/light back in.
Next thing I know there's a fish sitting on top of the filter media. That can't be good. Without benefit of the screen a fish got "sucked up"! Unplugged everything and got the fish back in the water. He was alive but I didn't expect him to be for long, he was mostly sitting still in the water and looking very stunned. One pectoral fin was missing, with a bloody stump in its place. (Keep in mind the fish somehow survived a trip through the impeller.)
But, lo and behold, within 24 hours he was swimming around like nothing had happened. Wow.
haha wow! danios are pretty bullet proof, hence being labelled as good "starter fish". I'm glad the little guy survived!
Danios get a bad rap for being inexpensive and hardy-but what's wrong with that! I love my danios. I cycled with them and still have them and some additions. They are fun to watch too.
You might want to add a little melafix to the tank to help clear up the injury without infection.
lol.. yes they are some pretty cool and hardy fish.. glad hes okay..
