OMG, i'm so sad. I didn't expect to be this upset when a fish died...
I killed sniffy accidentally. He was an upside down cat. He got caught in the siphon as i cleaned the tank.

Welcome to the forum, I wish it were under better circumstances.

I'm so sorry you lost your fish.
Please don't be hard on your self. Accidents happen.

Welcome to Fishlore.

I'm sorry to hear about your loss. As Lucy said, accidents happen so don't beat yourself up about it. I've done the same thing so I know how bad you're feeling.

awww i'm sorry. i love that name though! i've always had that fear of doing that.....i am going to get some corys soon.....i'll be paranoid! that's why i am afraid to by cherry shrimp/ghost shrimp. they can be sucked up in the vac and in the intake! the other day one of my galaxy rasboras was getting very curious about the vacuum, and they are small.

but yes, it was an accident. i know it makes you feel sad...but at least you cared about him/the other fish enough, to be cleaning their home in the first place.

Welcome to FL

It happens so quickly and easily, I nearly vac'd up one of my smaller glowlights the other week.... luckily I stopped the syphon in time.

Sympathies for your loss

RIP Sniffy

I've nearly sucked my guppies up a few times because they always want to check out the siphon. So sorry you had such a sad accident These things happen, as everybody else said. You can't blame yourself.
