    Our fishies never seem to stop amazing me sometimes!!!!

    Just wanted to say that I had a striped highfin goby that I basically chalked up to that big tank in the sky when I couldn't see any sign of him for the past month. Lastnight I had a huge surprise when I saw him swimming around in my refugium!!! Basically because in order for him to get there he had to journey ino my overflow and down the standpipe to my sumps in the basement ( no surprise there since I have already found him in the sumps once before), but in order for him to get into my refugium, he also had to make a trip straight through a Mag 7 pump that supplies the refuge!!!!! and he did and is now in perfect health. Not a mark on him!!!!!

    LOL!! definitely a Nemo is disguise!
    I have a snowflake eel that survived a trip into the overflow and then down the pipe. I have then a eggcrate cover and sheet of filter and a sheet of carbon. Somehow he made it through this and lived down there for months before I saw him! Not as amazing a journey as your guy...but none the less..

    Maybe you should get that little fishie to buy you some lottery tickets while his luck holds out
