I know what you mean. I temporarily put a foxface in my 20g reef and was dreading the day I'd be forced to take him out because he's so fast and will hide when I enter the room. This sounds REALLY BAD but I found him dead a few days ago in the back of the tank and although it's REALLY SAD, I feel much more comfortable knowing I don't have to deal with him. His top fin (dorsal?) was poisonous and he'd spike them everytime I put my hand in the tank so that didn't make me feel better either.

Overall, I'd rather take him out alive rather than dead obviously, but it's over....I've got closure at last.....

Me too it is hard for me to kill something but I guess sometimes it has to be done.
