I am sad...lost my favorite fish

I came home last night to find my six line wrasse on the floor....and he'd been there a while. Gave him the toilet salute but I am sad, he was my favorite fish and definitely had the best personality of any fish I've had. Now I need to replace him as my angel is looking quite lonely without him!

RIP little wrasse

That sucks

I just lost my very first saltwater fish too, my clownfish. Still haven't found it, but I only assume it jumped out as well.

I've had to jump out. A longfin fairy wrasse, and a royal gramma basslet. I had a canopy when the wrasse jumped, so I'm not sure how he got out. Still sucks to come home to find one of your favorite fish dried up on the floor.

Make yourself feel better by going out and getting a new one!

Sorry for your loss. Like Scoot said, go get another one. Maybe that will help. I lost a Firefish a week ago. I dont know what happened. I havent seen him in the tank nor around the stand on the floor.

This morning i smelled something ripe around the tank and i began to worry. So i moved everything around the tank and sure enough, there was the firefish i lost a week ago. He was all dried up. It sucks to see it dried up. Horrible way to go.
