long lost six line wrasse

Cool thing happened today. I cleaned my tank to include my sump(first time since setup in Sept 05) and found a six line wrasse living in the sump.

It have been at least two months since I have seen it and assumed it had died. Obviously it tried a nemo move and went through the overflow. Appears no worse for wear and has finally come out since I put it back in the main this afternoon. I am guessing it is full grown now 3"+ and has great coloration.

You always read the posts about fish losses, but rarely a fish find. How cool it that. 8)

I guess I now overstocked by one more.

What a nice surprise to find. I have found a couple fish in my internal over-flow but never in my sump. Better name it "Lucky".

Sweet! How rare the story of success! Heh, you could also name him Trump (as in Trumpin' the odds) and that kinda rhymes with sump. Heh... and all I find in my sump is crabs and snails...mmrph.
