I almost killed one of my fish :(

I thought this morning would be a good time to transfer the small male danio into the "chillout" tank to keep the other one company, but as I was tipping the net over into the top of the tank he flipped himself out and plopped onto the table. Before I had a chance to do anything, he'd flipped himself again and slipped down between the table and the wall. Disaster! This table is a big solid table and is very heavy to begin with, plus there is 54 kilos of water and gravel, not to mention the weight of the tank itself. So there was no way I could move the table. I couldn't poke anything in there without risking him injury, so I tried pulling out the cabling that ran through the gap. There were only three cables but somehow I managed to pull him close to the edge without him getting left behind on the carpet. I gently picked him up and sat him in the water, and to my relief he started to move. I let him go, and he swam away trembling. Poor little guy :( I'll post again later with his condition.

So far so good! I'll leave the light off for a few more hours, but it looks like he's going to be ok!

Well my little boy has taken up chasing the other little danio, so it looks like he's going to be fine ;)
