    One of my cherry barbs had her mouth stuck open for about a week. I read so many threads about fish with a mouth stuck open, most of them ended badly. I thought I would post my happy ending :) So it was just stuck wide open for about a week but she was acting normally. Yesterday I noticed the tiniest little something sticking out of her mouth. So we netted her out, hubby got the tweezers and pulled out a little piece of clear plastic. Don't know how that got in there. Her mouth is now closed and she seems fine!
