A long time ago I bought a pictus catfish. After it ate all my small guppies it started on larger ones. It ate so much it couldn't finish swallowing a big guppy. For half an hour a poor guppy head was sticking out the pictus mouth gulping and trying to get away. After it finished the guppies it started hunting neons.

I was acclimating new Platies and one jumped from the container directly into the garbage disposal. My husband was able to use one of those little grabber things and fish him out. He hung on for a couple of days but the trauma was too much and he went to fishie heaven. Now I acclimate everyone on the table, nowhere near a sink!

About 7 years ago I was doing my usual Friday morning ritual of flushing out my pond filter and replacing the water lost thru back flushing with a garden hose. I forgot to turn off the hose and had not gone to check on the pond until Sunday morning. Needless to say all my koi( ranging from 8-20") were dead, approximately 30+lbs of fish. I was literally crying as pulled one after another out of the pond. A combination of chlorine and rapid temp change did them in. All because I forgot to turn off the hose. Talk about being sick.

i've lost 1 white cloud and 5 pygmy cories to the drain.

i also had a golden wonder killi in a bucket that had gotten infested with mosquito larve, and my one my cats got in her out of the bucket and started playing with her. sliding her across my floor and what not. when i found her she was almost completely dry, and covered in cat hair. i threw in a tank to wash the hair off, saw that she had open wounds and put a little H2O2 on her. that was in march or so of last year and she is still alive today.

My two stories are a little different....

First the Bad:
Had a dwarf african frog get sucked into my powerhead one night. The next morning I found his legs amputated with his body stuck to the powerhead intake (Maxi-Jet 400 on circulation mode). That sucked to see.

The luckiest fish ever:
Giant danio jumped out of my 135gal (6ft long) this past Thurs night, which I've never had a fish do out of this tank in 6yrs. Lucky him he had landed right in the dog bowl that is only about 5 inches in diameter. What's the probability of him hitting that exact spot and not flipping out ? I have no idea how long he was in there. I found him at 6am...wondered what that was in the doggy bowl. It's back was out of the bowl of water (only about 1/2 inch of water in it). I thought he was dead until I picked him up and he was doing great !
