Unhappy Sorority collapse overnight

When I went to bed last night about 11 pm, all four girls were fine in the sorority. When I got up at 6 AM for work, my cambodian girl had gotten out of her breeder's net (although how, IDK, since there is a top on the entire tank that fits flush to the top of the breeder's net). My giant Betta Penelope was floating with her stomach missing, my blue crowntail, Carla is nowhere to be found, UglyFish is hiding in the Tardis, and the unnamed demon cambodian is swimming all over the tank with a hugely full stomach. Sigh. SIP, girls. I'm sorry. I thought you all were safe.

I'm so sorry to hear that. Atleast the Tardis provided some protection. =D

I just wish it WAS bigger on the inside, and that was where my crowntail was.

I'm sorry about your crown tail. I really want one but none at the store have caught my eye.

I'm so sorry! :( They can be sneaky little buggers. :(

I had some trouble recently with a girl after months of being okay, and it was awful to have to check every morning to see if anyone else had died... :(

Still, I'm so sorry for your losses! :(

Oh no, that is terrible! I'm so sorry! I dread something like that happening, and I can't even imagine how you must feel. :( Maybe that brat just needs to be alone forever. I guess some girls weren't made for a sorority environment. Are you going to try again with some new girls?

Hubby is going to buy me a larger tank (closer to 30 gallons) for my birthday on Halloween, and then I will try again with new girls. I think you're right, Shannonpwns: Once I get a bigger tank, the cambodian will probably never be allowed near other fish. She is back in the breeder's net, for now, and ugly fish is aggressively circling it, like she's waiting for her to get out so she can take revenge.

What bothers me most about it is that Penelope's ovaries were eaten -- pretty much nothing else was touched, just the area where she would hold eggs (and I suspect she'd been egg-laden for quite some time.) I just can't get over how vindictive and evil that cambodian is. Penelope has joined my terrarium, where at least she will live on through my plants. Circle of life, at least.

Jadablu -- I will be PM-ing you momentarily.
