Infact if you move the LR around a little, it will free up an particles of food and waste. That will be good IMO because the filter and skimmer will have a chance to really get the organics out.
Killing a damsel would be no different than killing a catfish or a deer. He wouldn't go to waste. I'd get him out and fry him up for the cat. I plan on doing a water change today so I suppose I can move some rock out in the process.

You can call me whatever you want. I like the term survivalist.

Well, I broke down today and pulled all the live rock out of the tank. I like the idea because I was able to rearrange the scenery to look a little more like I wanted it to look in the beginning. And the devil damsel has been caught.

Me either. My LFS is going to take him back and give me a peppermint shrimp in exchange so I'm on my way there.
