Ted tried to die today
It was last night, not today, but you get the gist..
Odd title, I know, but here's the story (sorry no pictures)
I got home from work at about 6pm and I have APA Pool at about 7 so before changing to some comphy clothes I decided to check my 3 tanks to make sure everyone's ok (something I actually don't do often enough) and everyone was fine, and everyone got a small pinch of food
I come home from Pool at about 11pm and gather up some clothes to toss in the wash and on my way to the laundry room I pass Ted's tank and I see a mass movement so I drop the clothes and rush over to his tank to find him pinned under the Anubias that's been in his tank for months now. Apparently a root had grown very long under the gravel and he swam under it and he had the most fearful look on his face. I don't know if he pinned in the flutter of motion that I saw or had been under there for a while but I lifted the plant and the root had to be like 4 inches long and he finally swam free and went into his cave. The look in his eyes was serious though. I never knew I could see emotions in a fish's face, but he had a look of pure terror. I switched the anubias to my larger tank and gave him one of my new microswords and he's much happier LOL
