OK that's not really what I wanna say, but anyhow.........
I just sucked my new baby girl up into my gravel vac! She didn't get to the part where the big tube meets the airline tube, but still. I had this happen once before with a girl and she developed dropsy within a few days of it happening
I tried to be so careful too! But as soon as I started the suction up she went! I never have these problems with the boys - they see the siphon and get the heck outta dodge. Why do the girls have to be so nosey? In her defense it was her first water change so she didn't know what was going on. I've only had her a week and when I changed out some stuff in her tank over the weekend I took her out.
Anyhow she seems fine, but I figure that kind of pressure can't be good for her, and after my last experience I'm gonna be worried for weeks. Keep little Violet in your thoughts ya'll. $^#@(&%$&$)*@%$_%)#&!!!!!!!!!!!
