Just a reminder to put the strainer back on...

last night before i went to bed i was messing around with my filter and i took the strainer off the end. i forgot and went to bed. i woke up this morning and noticed one my glowlight tetras was missing. i couldnt find him among the plants, so i began to think....could he be in the filter??? so i began to pull out the filter media and such, thinking i would find him dead. but he was still alive, after being sucked up and squished between all the filter floss, etc all night. he is a little banged up, so i put him in a hospital tank with some Melafix.

Great post. Sometimes you can over look the most simple thing.
