Yeah; both of mine died unexpectedly at separate times; I don't know how long
they were dead in the tank. Not more than a few days; I had one green
sunfish, four darters and two goodeids in the tank and none of them died,
despite the undoubtable pollution it created. I siphoned the gravel
immediately after teach one died; I'm not sure what caused it.
