This guy us a real jumper. I have heard stories of people finding their snowflake eel on the floor and about as crisp as a piece of beef jerky, to only have them recover after going back in the tank. I think we over feed our fish as I have left mine to forage for long periods of time with no ill effects.

So I go get a piece of paper to scoope him up and he flips a tiny bit!! I get him back into the tank and he kinda sinks to the bottom. After a few minutes he got himself together and seems OK now.

so miracle number two for this little guy. He was actually a bit dried up when i got to him, no idea how long he was on the floor for. Plus he fell about 4 feet. This poor little fish. My first thought seeing him on the floor was that i should have left him in the back of the bio cube. :-(
Sorry carey, glad you found him!

Unbelievable! What a survivor! And he's one of the best looking yellow watchmen I've ever seen too! Hope you can figure out a good home for him.

So I think I'm officially paranoid. :-/ I have been watching the tank like a hawk. He doesn't make it easier by hanging out on the frag rack that's near the top of the water. for some reason he doesnt seem to like the sand, probably since there wasnt any in the filter as he grew up. LOL

I haven't seen him eat yet but not sure what he even eats, he was living in the fuge so maybe pods. I sure hope not cause I have no pods in the rimless and none in the 90g really yet.

Thats another thing guys, should I move him to the 90g now or wait? I don't wanna traumatize the little guy any more than I have to and getting him out of the cube was really rough on both of us. I won't be breaking the rimless down for another couple weeks so should I wait til the last minute?

Thanks everyone!
