    Well during the feeding today when I pulled the screen off for about 30 seconds to squirt the food in he jumped out and I didnt see or hear anything. Found him on the floor about 20 minutes later. :oops:

    RIP

    Oh no!! That is such a bummer, Dan. (Just makes me wonder how many times they hit their heads doing that before they finally make it out.)

    I didn't realize they were jumpers. Seems like they are always on the bottom. Good to know. Sorry man.

    They certainly are. Forst reaction to anything is always into a cave or straight up. Wonder how going up works in the ocean?

    Up always seemed odd for ocean fish. They don't even feed at the surface. Makes good sense for FW.

    My watchman was a huge jumper at first (well he may still be but the tank is so well covered with mesh). Fished him out of the in built sump a number of times as he would jump through the 1 inch space between the eggcrate on top of the tank and the top of the sump compartment.

    So my solar wrasse couldn't wait for me to put the food in the tank so he thought he would just jump through a small section of the screen and just wait in the food cup!

    I am sure you can imagine my surprise o_O

    He could of been there for the better part of an hour. He went back into the tank and went in to hiding. He is out now and swimming like nothing happened.

    If you wanted to catch it, you probably would have had to take your whole tank apart so of course when you don't want it, it jumps right into your cup - gotta love it!! (NOT!)

    Sorry to tell everyone, but I have had to decide to separate from my GF and move back to my hometown in Indiana. Things just arent working out. The tank is being broken down and sold off. Please see my RC thread. Thanks everyone :oops:

    Sad to see another beautiful tank down. I was hoping this tank would be on the next tank tour so I can check it out. Good luck on your move.

    Everything has been sold off and picked up. Thanks to BAR members that got things. I hope you found everything in great shape and well taken care of.

    I do have a cadlights bio pellet reactor and a BRS dual reactor with MJ. Also almost a full gallon of both BRS calcium chloride and BRS soda ash. They have to be picked up TODAY or they will hit the recycling bin. Catching my plane in the AM tomorrow. PM if interested. Not free but cheap ;)
