That is a cool eel. Very sneaky, but pretty awesome!

I have officially named my eel. Houdini. This is the 3rd time I've pulled him out of the sump now. Twice I've had to pull him out of the last chamber on my sump which is problematic because he can fit between the slats on my pump.

The light is dimmer on the left side of the tank currently, some corals are recovering from the dinoflagellates still.

I have this guy here. A beautiful 2.5 inch McCoskers wrasse He's lost some of his blue because there's no females around. However, as soon as I'm no longer poor I am going to buy a trio of females to keep him company.

Beautiful. I have a female longfin fairy wrasse and a yellow coris wrasse and I have been longing for a Mexican Rock wrasse.

Well... that didnt last long.

I modified the coverings to prevent houdini from getting in my sump and i even went to my lfs to pick up a block of foam to make a pre filter for the inrake of my sump pump. Sadly, it was inexplicably closed, bis cars were there but nobody answered the door or phone (his shop is in his garage)

But due to the fact that i couldnt keep houdini out of my sump and i had no covering for my pump he got caught in the impeller and died.

So at this point i am over the semi aggressive setup now since the trigger and eel were the primary focus for my tank; Im going to return the trigger and go with something more peaceful in its place.

Ill give the snowflake another shot in a year or two when I upgrade my tank. Ill probably set up a lionfish tank that he would go good in.
