I had my first fish loss last night. I discovered an oto in the back corner lifeless. It looked healthy and happy just the day before with great coloration, so I'm really not sure what happened. The coloration and condition of the fish even looked good when I removed it from the tank. My thought is that perhaps it decided to clean the intake tube and made its way down to the bottom of the tube where it encountered the water suction and suffered some internal damage. Water parameters remained unchanged.

I'm sorry to hear that If it's just physical damage, though, at least the others won't be affected, right?

"Aquariums are like science, art, and hypno-therapy, all rolled into one," I insisted.
"You're not putting a hundred gallon tank in the living room," my roommate replied.

My aquascape style tends towards 'tall in the back, short in the front, lots and lots of green and stuff. And maybe a rock somewhere...'

Thanks, Silmarwen. So far, all my other fish are doing fine, and the other oto isn't showing any signs of a problem, so I think it was just a freak accident or a natural death.

Salty, whatever happened to this tank? I was gone from the forums for about 3 months, and this was the first I checked when I came back Would love to see some updates.
