I got up this morning to find my blue VT wrapped around the filter intake. Man did I feel bad!!!! Needless to say I made sure to put a sponge around the intake this time around. It is always disheartning to learn that a poor soul had to pay the price of a learning curve. :cry1:

Sorry for your loss. He most likely died elsewhere in the tank and the filter just sucked up his body.

I'm so sorry! I agree with the above posts though. Happens to my neon tetras when they die.

I am starting to believe that as well. Total yesterday I had 3 die. The one from above and then 2 crowntails. i think it might be the water I used for the tank. All the fish I had in that tank either died yesterday or the 2 I have left were having problems after being in the tank. One of which I still am not sure will make it as he is still having issues. I think the 5 gallon buckets that I was using to season the water may have still had some oil/grease residue left in them even though I thought I had cleaned them really well. It is the only thing I can think of that would have done that. My ghost shrimp that were in there are still alive so whatever it is doesn't affect them as much. I will not be using those buckets again without cleaning again maybe with bleach or vinegar. Thanks everyone for the thoughts.

Oh no! So sorry for your loss. With residue like that in the buckets I think I'd just go get a new one at the local Home Depot.
