Sandra the fish rookie Posted December 16, 2021 Share Posted December 16, 2021 Hi Everyone! I have a funny story about "Gazoo" my little pea puffer! I was going around my tanks adding ferts saying my hello's etc... I get to Gazoo's tank. He doesn't come up like he usually does. My hear IMMEDIATLY sinks, and I think to myself OH NO! Not my GAZOO! I turn on the tank lights, and continue to look .. nothing.. TAKE all the stuff out of the tank.. NOTHING.. He is no where! Now.. I am FREAKING OUT. Then I stop.. and think to myself... NO.. NO WAY.. He couldn't be in there?? I slowly open the sump drawer (that holds my filter media, heater and filter pump (see first picture) and THERE he was! Looking right up at me as if to say.. oh hey lady.. watsup! I had to think how I was going to get him out of there.. but was able to do it quickly and plop him back in the tank using a square shrimp net! I kept telling him.. "stay calm" DON'T PUFF! LOL Gazoo LOVES to chase floating snails (dead or alive). when I looked in the drawer there were some dead snail shells in there.. what I am thinking is that he must of jumped to get what he thought was a fresh snail meal, and went a little too far.. and went for a water slide ride through the VERY top of the overflow (there is a decent hole just above those slots) right into the filter drawer! I used some ACO coarse filter media to block the large holes so he can't jump into it again chasing snails!! He is safe and sound in his 5 gallon oasis! 4 3 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
