Glass gems and little fish...

I was just looking for Lily in her vase, and I couldn't find her anywhere, when i finally found her, she had wedged herself under the glass gems in the bottom of her vase.. I'm not sure if she was trapped in there, or if she could have wiggled her way out, but i moved the ones that were on top of her out of the way. Has anyone else had a problem with this before? Should I swap out the gems for regular gravel until she's a little bigger?

Yikes! Scary.

I might get a small bag of gravel, and then just cover the gems with it. Because then you would have the pretty gems, and gravel!!!

I had a betta that wedged himself under the rocks and turn himself upside down to sleep! We thought he was dead!

I had this hapen with Issy- as I was watching a glass gem fell on him and pinned him down. I took out the gems and replaced with gravel.

Yeah I have a mixture of gravel and marbles. I would maybe switch to something smaller.

The problem I have with gravel is that the smaller pieces go right through my strainer. Ugh!

Yeah, I just kept the larger pieces of gravel. It's usually not too much small pieces.
