Lost fish found
I recently purchased a blue jaw trigger for my tank. On October 2, my midas blenny jumped to his death behind the tank. We were on the couch and heard him jump, but there was nothing we could do to save him.
A few days later, my new blue jaw went missing. We assumed the same happened. I then built a screen top.
Last night, my wife was trying to look at the side of the tank, as its enclosed by 3 walls with only 6" on each side, when she sees something moving in the overflow. Its the blue jaw! He has been in there for almost exactly a month.
We tried to net him, but he goes to the bottom of the built in overflow when he sees the net. Its in the back corner of the tank, and I have to stand on a step ladder in the front and lean over the tank to get back to it. We have a deep 27" tank, so the net isn't long enough, and all of the pipes make his hiding easy.
Any ideas on how to get him out? He is too big to fit down the return pipe.
