Whats with todays kids... I mean fish? So I have had a few fish in the QT
tank, they are going on 3 weeks, and are eating happily.
I come home from work, and dinner and go to feed the new guys.
I feed them, the shrimp goby, and clowns immediately come up and snatch food from my hand and the surface and pig out...
I notice the HOB
filter isn't running, "wow thats strange" I think... and try to find the Lawn Mower blenny he is no where to be found..
but I have bigger problems... the filter isn't working, so I go to take it out and clean it.
This is where I realize that someone has shown or explained to the new fish about finding nemo...
someone gave the LMB the idea that he/she/it could swim up the intake tube and jam the impeller. That it would get dirty and I would be forced to take them out etc etc... we all know how the story goes...
I will be the first to let you know that it works.. unfortunately, it had happened a while ago, and the LMB was certainly dead.
so somewhere between 10am and 8pm the fish nocked off the strainer grill on the intake of the filter and decided to swim up there to cloudy
the tank and get them xfered over to the lush surroundings of the main tank...
tomorrow is another day
now I just think I have some thrill seeking fish...
the first a sleeper gobie, somehow managed to jump through the canopy and eggcrate to feel what the fuss over carpet was...
while the LMB decided to do a bit of amateur plumbing...
anyone else have some weird stories, besides Brenden's story about his fish being so fed up with brine that they throw themselves into the side of the tank?
