Carpet Surfing

Well... I HAD two McCosker's Wrasses... the other day I am pretty sure my puffer killed one of them. So I took the puffer back to Rob's.

Now tonite...even though I had my lid on the 46 gallon, there was a small gap there...and the other one jumped out onto the carpet and died while I was out! These fish were so pretty...I can't believe I've lost both of them. Geez....bad luck this week w/ the fish :(

WOW , sorry to hear about your bad luck. Do these fish normally jump out of an aquarium? I hate it when something dies while in my care . I use to save all the fish that died in the freezer and pull them out every once in a while to look at them . Heck when you pay good money for a fish , you have to get them most out of them anyway you can . :) my wife thought I was crazy. I am, just don't have the certification. anyways better luck next time this all a learning experience. Thanks for the lesson.

Yeah...I finally got the lid when my bar goby jumped out....I just didn't realize they'd find a little space between it and the tank...so now I'm being more careful when I take it off to clean it and put it back on..to make sure it's lined up properly.

:eek1: that is just disgusting man!

....on another note, do you think the second one jumped because his alternative was getting eaten?

I use plastic canvas (craft type) to cover all the holes in my canopy to prevent jumpers. It's cheap, and still allows air flow.
