My plecostomus, Jansen. He's swum the coop!
First, a little background: A few months ago, the mysterious apocalarium happened. Recall that I introduced a few new fish into the fold, and then one. by. one. all but one of the previously residing tankmates went on to fish heaven in the course of about a week. This left just two newbies and one strangely hardy old timer. This also coincided with a strange flourish of plant health.
I studied up, made a few adjustments, and slowly brought the tank back to a state of, I think, normal existence. Since my previous plecostomus, Hot Lips, died in the apocalypse, a noticeable algae problem came about in his absence.
So I went ahead and brought in Jansen. And Jansen went right to work, cleaning up like nobody's business. He also managed to stay alive. For quite a while, actually.
A week ago or so, I noticed my sunken temple, among other things, was becoming quite green with algae. Jansen was usually pretty good about cleaning my sunken temple, so what was up with all this algae?
|Devil Fish of Algae Town|
I've been looking for Jansen ever since. There is absolutely no trace of him whatsoever. No carcass, no nothing. Just lots of algae. And mystery. I think it's the Devil Fish of (now) Algae Town. They've done something with Jansen.
In the meantime...
If anyone's seen him or his *GULP* remains, please lemme know. We need closure.
