    Default Stupid move on my part!


    0 Not allowed!
    Tonight I decided to move my Splendida's in with my parrots because they are nuts and stressing my other bows. I get them all in a bucket and am moving them to the other tank thinking I could pour them in as I always do. Just as I tip the bucket up to pour them in the tank, away they go! Jumping out of the bucket and about 6-8 of them flew behind the tank and then flopped around until they were under the stand!

    I mean the second I tipped the bucket! Stupid fish. And there was no way to get them out from under there, either. I have a long handled net and was trying to push them to the back so I could grab them from the side but no way.

    I suppose I will have to break down that 55 just so I can clean the fish out from under it.

    I'm more sorry about them being under the stand. :) They aren't small guys, either. All were 4 inches and I see big red is now gone, too. He was probably 5 inches. Guess you can't "pour" rainbows.

    Oh no! That sucks! Do you have to break apart your tank, or can you wait for them to, er, well - dehydrate?

    Sorry about your loss Hobbs. They sound to be nice fish. Well nice to me. Even if they are a pain.

    A real shame. That is why I always do thing by nets. Never lost a fish by doing it that way.

    That stinks! I'm sorry that happened. Maybe you could use a vacuum and try to get them to, you know, stick to the intake as the vacuum is going and get them out that way . . . Hope it all works out.

    Maybe try and use a piece of wire to hook them out?

    That's really a shame, Hobbsy. Had the same thing happen to me about four years ago with flying barbs (Esomus species). They sailed right out when I tipped the bucket in.
    Fortunately their tank was and is open on all four sides and I was able to retrieve them before finis.
