Around 2 months ago, I gave my LFS roughly 75 Polar Blue Parrot Cichlids that I raised from eggs. I wanted to have a happy community tank instead of an aggressive cichlid one. So, I literally emptied the tank. Talking down to an inch of water and no decorations. Went and picked out all new fish and they've been swimming around happily for 2 months now. Today while cleaning out one of my HOB filters (I have two AquaClear 110's), I figured I'd give it a thorough cleaning and clean not only the filter media in the basket, but the area underneath the basket as well. I can't see what I'm doing because of how my tank's positioned, but I'm using my hand to scoop out any debris that I can feel. When something slimy grazes my hand. It creeped me out so much that I got my cell phone out to use the camera to guide me and show me what I'm feeling. Guys....it was a freaking fish!!!! Alive and thriving in the half inch section of water that sits below the filter media basket!!!!! One of the babies somehow made it into the filter and has been hanging out there for at least 2 months now! What kind of sorcery?!?!?!
