Well, after waiting more than a month with my new Yellow Polyps addition, I also put in a Niiiice looking firefish goby. Acclimated him over 2.5 hours with my drip bucket, and all was well. He went into my tank and was swimming around the bottom of the tank.
I went to bed thinking all was fine. For some reason, I woke up at 3am with the strange sensation that something was wrong (restroom
). I went to go take a look at how the fish was doing... and he was GONE 8O . I was thinking... "NOOOOOOOO... this isn't happening" Never did I think that this would happen to me. I almost didn't want to look, thinking that he could be chopped up by some kind of impeller or whatnot. I thought he could've been sucked down into my sump via one of my two overflow boxes. I REALLY didn't want to have to empty my sump to find the thing. Even worse... taking out my LR
to find him in a crack. I looked around for a half hour with a flashlight... nothing. After saying "forget this, I'm going to bed" I woke up this morning and went to feed my clowns. They ate nicely, still no sign of Mr. Goby. Then after getting ready for work, I went back for a final look, and there he was in the back of the tank!! 8O 8O I looked away for a moment, turned back, and again... GONE.
I never thought that this would be "normal" behavior for a firefish... I merely hope that everything is fine health wise. I need a QT
Not the way I wanted to wake up on my birthday.
