I just got a new 10 gal
. aquarium about 3 weeks ago. After reading many blogs I purchase the Master test kit and all the other recommended maintenance items. Well, Thursday I tested my water and saw I had high Ammonia. I did my first water change using the siphon. I was incredibly nervous to suck up or injure a fish. But I managed to do a 25 to 30% change with no issues.
The next day I tested again, and the ammonia only slightly dropped. I then decided I needed to do another water change, this time 50%.
This time around I removed most of the decor so I could really get in there and see what Iím doing. Everything was good, I kept counting my little guys. I then continued to replace the decorations & refill after some time. About an hour later I check in and do my count and one of my Coryís is missing. Iím in a panic.
Iíve emptied out the tank, took out the decorations. Checked the hallow ones, nothing! Iíve moved around the gravel, nothing. My fish tank is also covered.. how did he go missing, did I kill or bury the little guys without realizing? Iím truly heart broken and feel so bad!
I donít understand how thereís no trace!
