Big loss last night

Last night as I was about to sit down and relax for the evening my Keyhole Cichlid got spooked by something then swam straight up and hit my glass canopy then died. Had him for 3 years. R.I.P Guido miss you buddy!

Yep, the tank seems so empty without him. This fish was the one that made him love the hobby also. He even dug a hole in the frozen dirt so I could bury him. Best hubby ever!

I had something similar happen. I had a bala shark in a tank and he needed to be moved. We tried to get him in a net and he bolted into the glass and died shortly after.
