I feel terrible. :(

On Sunday night I made my first transfers of juvies from my fry tank, back into the main tank. I put in 2 acei and 2 estherae around 1.25" and turned off the light. Ever since, I couldn't account for both of the little acei. I kept looking, but could only see one. I figured one may have gotten munched, but I held out hope he was just shy and hiding out.

The 2 estherae and 1 acei I could see were doing fine, so last night I decided to transfer a few more of each. I went to my 95* garage to get my stuff. I reached into a bucket, pulled out my net and found the missing acei... in the net... crispy as a corn chip. I could have sworn I saw him get out of it, but I was obviously wrong.

Learn from my carelessness... check your net.

Oh, that really sucks. It hurts when something like this happens, doesn't it? I HATE losing fish, but would especially so if it were my fault. :-(

I also just lost one of my fish. It was really tough because I hadn't had any death's in a long time. I had just moved a group of Ngara Flametails from a 29 gal to a 60 gal. I guess one of the females was overly stressed from the move. Water conditions were good in the new tank Fully cycled, the PH was a little higher 8.3 compared to 8.2. The other's seem to be adapting. I moved the fish simply by netting and carrying them aprox 8 feet to the new tank, should I have done anything different?
