    He was lost but now is found....

    I put a 'watchman' goby in my tank several months ago.
    Saw him a couple of times over the next fews days, and then, nothing for 2 months! I figured he was gone.... :-(

    Doing some work on the sump tonight, and yahoo! There he was, hiding near the protein skimmer. He wasn't easy to catch either....fast little guy.

    I've had to remove one of my clown fish from the sump several times and never noticed the goby.

    I'm glad he's safe and swimming/watching happily in the main tank. :-)

    Just thought I share that with all of you.
    Regards,

    Patrick, glad he showed up. They are such cute little things.

    I picked one up from Ivan a couple weeks ago. He does not sit out front, but rather at the side of the tank in the rocks. Fortunately I can see him.

    nice.. gone for 2 months.. wow.. i'd declare it dead.. I have damsels that left but never showed up again... its been months.. they did'nt jump nor are they in my sump.. so i presume they are dead.. eaten by my snails and crabs.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    I have a screen over the overflow, but the spacing is about 1cm sqauare (flurecent light cover, aka egg-crate). Guess he was small enough to squeeze through.
    Hopefully he'll pair up with the pistol shrimp (whom I haven't seen in a while either....)
