Lost Clown...

Well, the filter on my quaratine tank packed in today, so had a mad panic to move my two new Clowns and my Silver Tips into my main tank....and then I realised that one of my Clowns had disappeared!! Oh no!

Well, I looked everywhere, stripped the tank down and all, but eventually gave up. I went to take the filter apart to see if I could salvage it, when I heard a sound from inside it! Took it apart, and a very unhappy loach was jammed between the blades of the impeller. He'd obviously swum up the outlet and got stuck!

Took a bit of shaking to get him out, but he was totally unharmed and is now swimming happily in his new tank with his friend! I was mightily relieved I can tell you!

Anyway, back to work...need to email my wife so they get fed.

Matt
