View Full Version : Why Me?

I just went to buy a banded loach, and the guy bagged it for me. I bent over with the bag to get one of those nutrafin plant Co2 machines on sale for 20$, and the elastic broke. The fish fell about 2 feet, and was still in the bag. His belly is red. Anything i can do or should i wait it out?

Oh, and i found someone whos buying my 10g.

Save the $20 and just make your own CO2 system for pennies. Feed the tube right into the filter intake.

As for the fish, no clue. Red belly probably indicates internal bleeding, so there isn't much you can do but wait.

I already bought the machine. Its cool.

The loach isnt lethargic or anything.

Hope he's ok. The water probably cushioned his fall. I think if he was to die, he'd have done so right away.

Probably. Hes cruising along and found a piece of driftwood to hang by.

I already had other stuff, but that CO2 diffuser caught my eye last.

Hes looking fine. He staked out a rockstack and a piece of driftwood for his hideout.

I hope there werent security cameras on me when the bag exploded. I'll probably be on TV next month
