Gorgeous tank! ...but wow there are TONS of little nooks and crannies for the blade to be hiding in. It's so full of stuff I imagine this is like finding a needle in a haystack for you! Good luck!!!!

Yeah Floyd, regardless of the type of Alloy, i think if it's exposed to prolonged saltwater exposure it will rust. But seriously, judging by the size of that tank, and the amount of live rock, and the fact that most of it is resting against the back, i think you may have quite some trouble finding that thing. It could have dropped in to the sand and went in deep enough that you can't find it. I would try dragging that magnet over every inch of visible sandbed to see if you get anything.

It could be that when it hit the water it hit it on its side and kinda "glided" for some distance. And is nowhere near where you think it should be. Just a thought.

I definitely agree with this. Check a few inches from where you thought it fell.

You could also try turning the lights off and shining a torch/flashlight around... Try to spot a reflection.

So I dragged the tank today with my magnet-on-a-stick:



and came up empty.
