Default carpet surfing

It was destiny. It jumped out once and after 2-3 minutes, I found it and put it back in the tank. It looked shaky for a few days but then it was as good as new. A few months later, I wasn't around to save it and my wife found my little girl chewing on the dried mummified fish.

Mine's still doing very well (>16mos), but he does have a bit of a death-wish. He's squirmed into the overflow chamber twice. Not an easy rescue. He seems to enjoy teasing the royal gramma a LOT. Gramma is territorial and does the wide-mouth charge. 6-line dances around him, flashing and prompting charges. Then zip off into the rocks for another snack.

Generally, I got mad at six-lines within a year and got rid of them. My current resident lives with a trigger and now I like them !

Very nice fish. Had no problems with him until I added a Neon Dottyback to the tank. They didn't fight the Dottyback just kept him in a hole in the rock until he starved.

I've had mine for over two years. Ever since he jumped out of the tank about 5 months ago (I was watching TV and heard one of the cats playing with something by the tankI was able to save him from the carpet and give him fish CPR) however he has been somewhat mentally handicapped since the accident.

I have had a fat one for about 1.5 years. I have been trying to catch him for about half a year. He decided he liked my sexy shrimp. He ate about 8 of them. Hated him ever since.
