I never thought it would happen to me. I have never had any fish leave my tanks except in their cups during 100% WC. Well today I was doing a major water change in my 29 gallon sorority when two things happened.
One of my girls, Onion, gets a ride up my siphon tube. I saw her disappear into the squeeze pump area. I freaked and start tearing off the squeeze pump and couldn't find her. I looked down. There she was.. ON THE CARPET!
With wet hands I quickly and carefully pick her up and put her in one of the full buckets for a moment. Then after she started moving around, back into the tank. It's lucky that she is Okay and is behaving like nothing had happened. She even ate normally. Her fins are fine, just a little bruised. Poor girl.
What is your most memorable out of water experience? I had finally and horrifingly had mine
Let's hope it's my last.
