This may sound mean but can you take out what you can and shake him out into the tank?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I hope you can get your goby out safely, anyway to prevent him from doing it again? I once had a clownfish jump to the pump section of my biocube, thankfully that only happened once
I too do that, lol. A crab may just be sitting in a crevice and my instant reaction is "he is stuck, I must save him!". Patience usually works, but I'm pretty certain you'll have to fish that guy out with your hand or a little net.

Lol... My Halloween hermit was under a rock in our DT and hadn't moved all day. We moved her and I swear she's giving me attitude for taking her out of her space. Can a hermit give dirty looks? Buy I would get your fish. It's been three days ... I would be starting to worry.

We have a special dance we do that coaxes all the critters in our tanks into doing exactly what we tell them. Now that I mention it... Where did I put my
Tambourine? Lol

Is it possible to flush the system with extra water? maybe the current will cause him to float upwards and out? can you reach a finger or anything else in there where he is?
