Lost a clown today...carpet surfing :(

Came home today to find our smallest perc on the carpet. I only have the very corner of the tank (about 2"X4" area) open for equipment and cords to get into the main, he found the spot. Poor little guy, had him for a year.
He was the smallest and the family favorite.
Thank goodness my kids didn't find him. 8O

I'm so sorry! Dealing with a loss is never easy, especially when you have to break it to kids.

They know already. I don't want to put another in the mix. I'm afraid the rest of my clowns would beat one up too bad.
Thanks all. Watch them lids. :|

I didn't know clowns were susceptable to carpet surfing. Is there something that caused him to jump?

Not sure if anything scared him but I have had several of them jump into my built in overflows, so I guess they are susceptable. We all learn from experiences...so I my new stance is they can be jumpers.

I wonder if they are less likely to jump if hosting an anemone
