Puffers Series Of Unfortunate Events.

Well, to make a long story short, our GSP Went jumping while the tank was being moved....

Had the tank setup, had the water back in it, had all the rock work redone... Last step, add the one, lone fish we've had for a long time.

Alas, sometime between when I put him in the tank, and got all the lights, etc together to top the tank, he jumped.

My wife suspects she knows the instant it happened, as there was a very important visual clue that she saw, which i did not.

That visual clue is about 13 lbs of Ocicat. that very same clue had taken up temporary station behind the fish tank. And that very same clue most likely caught the puffer before he even hit the floor.. ;-(

It was a sad day, to be sure, and we miss the puffer, a little.. We were wanting to trade him in, as he was getting a bit aggressive for the tank.

Everyone, Allow me to introduce Laci (My 5yr old named her (he, it?))

We miss him too, but now, we've got Laci, so all's well.

She's actually quite a humerous fish, once she got over being "shy"
