Well pretty sure my daughter killed my catfish

In my outside pond tank. She poured dog shampoo into it. The irritation I'm feeling right now is just beyond measure

Did she pour a little or a lot in it? If it was just a small amount the fish might be okay. Does it have a filter system? Anyway to change some water or add charcoal to it? Charcoal can help absorb some of the chemicals.

Aren't kids so much fun. When my son was little he put cool aide in my sisters fish tank. Luckily it didn't hurt the fish. Just freaked my sister out.

It was a good amount all I could think of to do was put the hose in it and let it cycle water out for a few hours. Yes kids can be very exciting heh keep you on your dang toes that's for sure. I was Just watering my dang tomatoes ugh she's quick.

Lol my 2 year old is crazy as well. She always imitates me when I am working on the tank. Shell play in the buckets. Play with the trimmings. What a mess.

If you have a two year old and a pond, you are lucky it was only shampoo. It could have been her floating in the pond????

It's a pond style tank not an actual pond. It's a 40b and I've caught her doing a lot of sneaky stuff and climbing into the tank was never one of them. Are you suggesting I should put arm floats on my daughter every time we go outside?

Any parent knows actual pondsgo hand in hand with fences.

Anyway, two catfish died over night

Sorry have to disagree on this one. Kids drown everyday and they can do it in a five gallon bucket. With a 40B, you are probably safe but that is not a pond as most people define pond.
My point is that kids need constant attention. If they have time to squirt stuff in the tank, they have time to get hurt or killed. When they are two is a good time to make sure they understand.
Catfish are cheap and kids are hard to replace.

A bunch of years ago, my middle one was about 3 or 4 and had a friend over. There were 4 adults in the next room. After one was spotted standing on her tippy-toes pouring something into one of the tanks, you just wouldn't believe how much and how many different things they poured into a 29G to "feed the fishies". Every flake, medication, water treatment got dumped in there. In a matter of 30 minutes you couldn't see to the back side of a 29G. And no, not all of those things would've been good for a 4-year old's health. Kids are a trip...........a journey..............an odyssey.

Ya gotta watch them for sure. For the fish' sake too.

Haha replacing the child is probably the last thing on your mind if they drowned in the pond! Good point though.

Dog shampoo and a pond tank? That shows a lot of ambition for a kid to climb up on the shelf or wherever else you keep your dog shampoo and then take it out and pour it into a tank. She must have been determined.
