crazy clown

Got a scare this AM. Went to check my qt tank and do my usual head count. Well one of my clowns was missing. I looked with s sunken heart all around the tank figured he may have jumped out of the small hole in my eggcrate....no dice.
Found him in the overflow box (circled part in the pick) scared to death.
The only way to get him out (short of shutting down the system and dumping him in) was to try and get him with my hand. To my surprise, he pratically jumped into my hand. Guess he didn't like it in there much.
He's doing fine and happily reunited with his buddies.

He was trying to be Nemo... thought he could make a quick escape and then thought better of it.
