do you siphon? or do you just manually dump out the water? in my experience as long as you dont purposely make them lose their footing on the glass/deco/ect, they wont detach and go out with the water. or if you REALLY want to make sure, before you dump out the water, check in your bucket or whatever first for them. they'll be on the sides

my scaley babies:

~ tamaki: male blue/orange delta crowntail
~ natsu: male orange veiltail
