Well I'm not sure where to start...
We left for a 1 week vacation. I had everything taken care of, my sister was going to do topoff's and feed every-other day. She has experience with fw
so I knew overfeeding would not be an issue. I had plenty of fw
made up for any emergencies though just in case. I had 3 fish at the time, 1 singapore angel, 1 O. clown and 1 green chromis.
Two days after we left she calls to say she can't find the angel anywhere, he didn't come out at feeding time either which is not a good sign. I had her check ammo and everything is in check.
She calls again the next day to say that my clown is now gone (my favorite), does another ammo check.
Two days later she calls and says there is a piece of tail missing from the chromis. I have a CBS but didn't think they would attack like that. I also have 40# of lr
.com rock with assorted hitchhiker crabs which are getting fairly large but have only seen them picking at the rock. I also have seen a pistol but there are others I have not seen so it's possible it/they could be mantis. Guess I'll have to set some traps and see what I have...
But there is more to my story...
Came home yesterday to find the water level was way down. Not evaporation down but like something wrong down - about 20 gals low 8O .
The intake portion of my ph
's were under water but the output was shooting up into the air geyser like. I found the problem surprisingly fast, I use cable ties to strap some filter pad to the output lip of my remora skimmer to prevent most of the bubbles from returning into the tank. Apparently it had slipped off and she put it back on but when she did she got it bunched up way too high which created a "dam" effect. The excess water was spilling down the back of the tank and onto the carpet.
So now I have a dehumidifier and a fan running trying to dry it up. I suppose it could always be worse but sheesh....
Anyway, if you're still reading this thanks for giving me a shoulder to cry on
