Rep: Tabichia1 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Vaccume wound

Omg, I was just vacuum my tank I have 8 three month old axies in. As, they are messy at this age. One of them darted like he was going to swim to the top as they sometimes do, and swam into my vaccume. I quickly turned the water direction back to fill, but it tore about a half inch of skin above his rear leg back so that the meat was exposed, and about an inch of his colon came out of his rectum. Omg, I separated him, in a 10 gallon tank with a bubbler, and put an ice pack in with him to keep him from bouncing around. He's been flicking his gills for about 5 hours. So, I know he's alive. What do I do. I have never had anything like this ever happen
