RIP Princess Peach

I was at work and my boyfriend was asleep. There was only a tiny opening in the front for feeding and she managed to jump through it and onto the nightstand and then flopped onto the floor. By the time she was found, it was too late.

I will miss you my little princess. I really wish I had known that such a tiny opening would have been such a danger to you.

Don't tell me you have one of those 1.5G Tetra Wonders tanks?

When you mentioned the feeding hole, that's what I thought of first.

I usually drop cooking thermometer in there so it covers the hole.

Sorry about Peachie. I lost my killifish the same way after he leaped out the factory cutout in the rear of the tank. That little 2" killie ate at least 200 full sized flies for me.

Thanks. I am definitely thinking of ways to either cover the hole for future use or switch to a tank that has an opening that she can't jump through.

Thanks DQ. Peach was really special to me. She was a pretty little female.
