cor what a scare. affraid
just got up and did the usual count up on fish,
1 Clown affraid
then I heard this funny flapping noise in the tank.
open top to find Nemo on the narrow ledge that goes around the inside of the tank.
I dont know how long he's been there Marmalade was panicking
swimming round him.coming to front of tank looking at me..lol
fish
Now you all know I don't/wont touch fish.....never been able to.
(I can't crumble a oxo either..lol

I came across my fears and flicked him in the water.. pale
he disapeared for a few mins.now back swimming with Marmalade.

(should have left him really he's the one that bites...

So should you count up and find one missing
CHECK THE LIP AROUND THE INSIDE OF TANK.
I also found a Danio dead once on the glass cross member in a tank..

My water level at the top is inbetween high and low,
well lucky Nemo is all I can say................. Phewwwwww.
