So tonight I was sitting on the floor and noticed weird movement in my tank. Getting up I find my 3in angelfish stuck in my skull decoration.

Poor thing was terrified!

A pic to see the bigger size he is next to a black skirt tetra!

What weird predicament have your fish gotten into?

It wasnt a fish but my fiddler crab molted in the tank and then he crawled into the filter and was resting on the cartridge. It was weird because i thought his molted shell was him, so when i opened the filter i was totally suprised to see a crab sitting there
BTW your angelfish is awesome

My dojo loach was chilling inside the tube of my sponge filter upside one time. He always finds the strangest places to sit in, but this one was the strangest!
Here's a pic of one so you know what i'm talking about lol.

Does a siphon count? I sucked up my little acei one time. She is always curious, and tried to get to what I was sucking up. She hit the tube head first and ZOOMED down the line! Luckily she was just a little shaken up.
I also had a yellow lab jump into one of those floating net things that you put tablets in for treatments. His poor tail was above the water but luckily his head was down in the water. I got to him just in time and he was so stuck that he had to be cut out of it!

Both of these events happened on the same day!!!

Thank you! He's so chill normally and just floats around. I think he was trying to get a veggie pellet that landed in there.

These are great stories! Make me laugh.

My shrimp regularly ended up in the filter box of the original airpowered filter I put in their tank. They would just swim right in the outflow. Every morning when I checked the tank I would have to dump them back out. Soon enough I got a sponge filter!

When I was a kid we had goldfish. And one of them we found UNDER the rug on one occasion. another time halfway up the stairs. It had been playing with one of the neighbourhood cats.

Each time it was put back in the tank with half an aspirin (I don't know why, that was the thing to do back then) and went on to live many more years.
