He got sucked up the filter intake. And he was there for hours!
he was stuck up it until,my dad unplugged.

He is living but barley his fins are beat.


It is the aqua tech power filter 5_15.

I'm so sorry!! Treat him in a QT tank. Use 1 teaspoon per gallon of quarium Salt to treat him for issues on his body. Treat for 10 days only and do daily water changes. Hope he gets better, I'm so sorry! :(

So sorry I hope he makes it and his fins will grow and heal. I dont understand why these companies will not make filters that are more safe for fish so they do not get sucked in.

Also before you put him back in the tank, stuff the intake tube of the filter with sponge or floss so it can't suck him up anymore but water can still get through.

Sending healing vibes to your fish.

Cover the input with it, or even just cover it with an unused sponge,

:/ Then just make sure the water is VERY CLEAN. Give him some live foods to boost protein intake, or even frozen. FD foods won't do much.

Thanks I will.

My parents think aquarium salt is unnecessary.
