Carpet Surfer

Just kinda upset to say that I lost a fish. One of my Mccosker wrasse somehow escaped the tank. I know they are jumpers and he found a hole.

I have had 2 Mccoskers in my tank now for quiet awhile. Both doing very well and they were actually becoming to be inseparable. Even sleeping next to each other. Unfortunately the younger one was just found dried up on the floor. Somehow under the overhang of my ATO reservoir behind the tank. I feel terrible. I feel like he suffered a lot being where he was. He was a really great part of my tank that I really hate to lose.

I feel for you. It's hard to lose a favorite fish, especially if you feel at fault. I once had a tiretrack eel find his way into the hob filter, and from there to the floor. Unfortunately, the cat found him before I did. . .

Sorry about the loss . I've been there with jumpers. It's so crazy the holes they can get through
