So, here I am thinking everything is going good with my small established aquarium. I had a 2.5 Gallon tank with a Betta names Max in it. Just the Betta nothing more. We had Max for only 3 months, we had him in a fully cycled tank. :-(
The tank is not the problem, I did my weekly water change (50% water change in that small of a tank). I finished cleaning the tank and put the lid back on where I normally put it and left to go see "The Hobbit, An Unexpected Journey"
I come home just now and couldn't find Max in the tank. I looked and looked. I find him behind the stand dead.
I know this is Salt Water FOWLR
thread, but had to share my sad experience somewhere. Didn't want to start a whole new thread. I still don't get it, I never had a fish JUMP out of a tank, I never had my first Betta jump out of his tank for the three years he lived with me. I never thought Betta's do jump, especially when the opening was so small. I just don't get it!!
Well, Max went to the great fish bowl in the sky today, and here I am still trying to get a SaltWater tank going. I am talking about Jumpers and got a lid for my Saltwater tank so I wouldn't have a jumper and what happens. My Betta jumps. :-(
