My 40gal started to leak today while I was at work, and my Finace called me to tell me that he was bucketing the water out. I only had three fish in it, two small plecos (about 1.5 inch) and a small Acei. I get home and he tells me that he put them in a bucket.

I go into the bathroom to check on them, and bam, my acei is dried out on the counter.

*facepalm*

I really liked him too.

Not going to lie. I was thinking the same thing. I got a laugh out of the thought, but I'm sorry for the loss. We all lose a fish here and there, especially since cichlids won't give an inch to someone new to the tank.

Sorry for your loss, on the bright side the fiance can always be replaced. j/k :)

Now the paranoid brigade wants to know, what made the tank leak?

It was a fixer upper. I got a 40breeder for 20 bux and I had to replace the silicone on the inside.

of course I missed a spot :|

I put my acei in after a few days to help cycle, and because he was being picked on, i figured he would like 40g to himself for a bit.

And [email protected] the fiance bits, now that I re-read it I laughed too.

And sorry for the looonnnggg time it took me to look at my old posts and realize that I hadn't answered this one xD
