    Default can't I catch a break

    As most weel know I have been trying catch up with my fish after an extended leave. With that in mind, I pulled one of the most rookie of mistakes that cost me two fish that happen to be breeding.

    my lelupis were breeding in the big cow skull, and I neglected to look after doing a breakdown clean last night. Usually I check every part of the skull to make sure no one is hiding inside, (the lelupis are notorious for it)

    Yesterday I did not, and after a few hourse I noticed that they were not in the tank (I use a diatom when I do a breakdown clean, so I stir up the water pretty good and walk away, working on an0other tank) When I found them it was a little too late.

    all those empty tanks(11).....what shall I do?

    Oh, no! I'm sorry. That's hard to lose a fish that way. I've nearly lost catfish to holey rock before.
