There are some incredible fish stories out there.
You kidding? What did he eat? Is there a lot of space back there on those?

He just ate the leftover food that went from the tank through the filter space. lol He was ALOT bigger when he came out than when I had him so he def didnt go hungry.

He was hiding where the sponge goes between the left compartment and the center compartment. I gotta say it was nearly impossible to get him out. Had to block up that hole between sections and try to net him, took hours....

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

Back in there this morning! Just swimming and happy. Guess he need a break from his partner. Lol. I put the net in to scoop him and he hopped right in. Too funny!

Usually poor water quality or aggression from other tank mates. But sometimes they just want to try carpet surfing....

+1 on that. I had just introduced a new clown that day. Luckily I heard it and plopped him back into the tank. That was in the beginning of June and he's still swimming.

I had a midas blenny that made in from my living room/dining room all the way into the kitchen. lol Unfortunately my hubby stepped on him a bit in the middle of the night. He lived through that and went back in the tank but died a few days later. Poor little guy......
