Bumming today...

...as I lost some loaches in my 55g yesterday. Probably the two largest of my mystery schisturas, one of two zippers and one robusta. I was away most of the day and night. And when I arrived home, my son informed me that he had noticed that my tank had issues. The airline tubing had a kink in it, causing the airstone to quit working. He had unkinked the airline, but too late to save the aforementioned fish. Water parameters checked out OK but the canister filter was due for a cleaning. The survivors all seem to be fine today. S*** happens, but it's especially depressing to lose fish that might be very difficult or impossible to replace :(
