Tonight, I noticed that my fish was laying on it's side. I decided to do a full water change, and proceeded to carry this fish's tank to the sink.
As I was trying to transfer the fish into the second tank (the holder tank, that's used during water changes), it tries to JUMP back into it's tank!
Poor little Herman falls into the sink. Water is everyone, over a gallon of water gushing all over the floor. The other tank tips, too. Before I could even realize what just happened, I realize that my poor fish is down the SINK. :( :( :(
I couldn't feel more horrible about it. It was sick and laying on it's side, but I thought I could help it with a water change. And it went down the sink. I just can't believe it. :( I'm shocked.
Freak accident, and yes, I feel terrible. Just terrible. Never will I change the water near a sink. I guess I was in a bit of a hurry to change the water since the poor fish was sick, but this time the water change went wrong and ended in disaster. :(
Has anything like this ever happened to you?
I hope not, but I'd fell less wrecthed if it did. I know that accidents happen, but I'm just stunned. MY POOR FISH. :(
