Well, Curtis got home and pointed out a little girl in the sorority who was dead. Not even floating, just seemingly stuck to a plant...which was strange. It was pearl, my little aqua sweetie =( After getting her out, I checked her for what might've been the cause, but I'm not really sure. Some scales were raised, and her belly seemed rather red, not the usual silvery color it normally was. I checked all the other girls and cories, and everyone seems fine, so...I'm not really sure what happened. She wasn't stuck there this morning when I fed them, everyone was alive just eight hours ago....

Sounds bacterial to me... I hope it's nothing major (like whatever I'm dealing with...).

So sorry for your loss. Do you have any pics of her?

I let my hornwart get out of control at the top of one sorority tank had to rescue a tiny female from drowning the other day. She was literally stuck like a Ford truck in there. Not sure this is what happened just the possibility.

No, I didnt take any. Not after death anyways, and prior it was hard, she would never top moving. But when I'm filming, photobombs the camera when I'm trying to get someone else in focus xP

Some of mine is a tad of a mess at the top, but I shake it loose every now and again. The current of the filter draws it into a bunch though >.< So I just keep shaking it every once in a while.

The plant she was 'stuck' on was a lower, leafy one.

Was she really stuck, or I'd she just sit in that position? If she was truly stuck she would have drown but that wouldn't explain the pineconing... Unless she had internal damage.

She didnt seem really stuck, but at the same time it seems odd she'd end up resting there and not on the gravel. Her gills were a little inflated, but I'm not sure if that was because of drowning, or simply after death.

Did it look like she was flaring?

I wouldn't say it's odd. When Jackson and Xanthus (both now dead) got into a fight, Jackson (who got beat up the worst) was wedged into a artificial plant when I found him.

Nah, not flared out. Just the edges were visible. And the raised scales wasnt terrible either, if I wasn't looking for them I wouldnt have found them. It was subtle.
