Unhappy Bichir jumped..

Sad day.. didn't see my delhezi this morning, looked around everywhere and found it on the floor behind the tank. I'm thinking it must have jumped where my tidal filter outlet is and wriggled across the lid and fell behind some time in the night. Covered up the hob filter with some plastic mesh now.

Had her since January, grew from about 2 to 7 inches. Should've known better that they can slip out anywhere they can.

Never known a fish like this existed. If in fact it is a fish or some other type of aquatic animal. Sorry about your loss. It used to break my heart seeing a rainbow fish dead on my floor.

They're an ancient African freshwater species, some get fairly large 12-24"+. I still have three other species but that one was the best. Never easy seeing fish die early

For sure. They are pets after all. You want the best for them. Good luck with the others.
