That's exactly how my wild Bettas are/were!
You basically had to Saran Wrap the top of the tank and put something around it to hold it down so they couldn't get out. Lost soo many beauties to having a teensy hole in a piece of craft mesh for a wire or two to run out.

I'm sorry you lost him!


Anyways, all I've done so far today is turn my lights on and do a baby check in the breeding tanks/nets. Will probably do w/c's on everything so I don't have to mess with it this weekend, but considering not to because I already did most of them yesterday.

Oh, I did get some baby koi angels today though! Smaller than pea size right now so I'm doing a VERY slow drip acclimation in them, it's been an hour so far, will probably go 2 hours on them.

Oh, nooooo, so sorry for your loss, that is just awful. Ouch, that hurts.

So sorry. Awful and amazing how they can get out like that. I have had smaller ones jump, it is crazy how small a hole.
