life in a canister
I decided that it was time to clean my Ehiem 2026. The only
maintainence I've done on it since I got it 9 months ago was
change the top pad once. So I unplugged it, took all the media
baskets out. There was so much muck in the 2" space under the
last basket I decided to just pour it all down the drain. As
I was carrying it to the bathroom, I caught a glimse of something
swimming around in there. So I dumped the contents into a net and
I found a black molly (2"), a wagtail platy (1"), a full grown
cherry barb (male) and four Amano shrimp! Probably got in there
as fry or something I guess. Anyway - I thought it was interested
that they've managed to survive in there. In fact, they all looked
pretty healthy expect their coloration was a little pale.
Anyway - they're in the 75 now - a lot more space than they're used to.
