I feel sick!
So as a few of you might now I am treating for Columnaris. My smallest gbr started showing some white spots as so did the other larger gbr that always seem to hang around each other but I thought they were sisters. So according to the directions of the treatment I did a 25% wc and moved a couple plants around. So as usual there are some leaves floating around the top and I grab them as quick as I can with the net and as usual I place the net on top of my light fixture. Then I have lunch. I come back about 15 minutes later and the bigger gbr seems like he is looking for something. So I started looking and couldn't find the sicker "sister." I move everything around looking for her and what do I find, eggs on a piece of slate!, but not her. Well I m baffled, I look around the floor, move everything, and the I think where else could she be. Check behind thermometers, sponge filter, and she isn't anywhere. Then it dawns on me. I must have thought she was one of the leaves. She was in the net, resting on top of the light fixture, dead. I placed her in the water in the net for a few minutes to she if she came back.
I feel sick. Yes, my fish have died before, but never directly by my hand.
The bigger gbr continues his search, and the Cories and other fish have found the eggs.
