More than a month after he went missing, I found my missing Tailspot, ALIVE, in the back chamber of my tank. I have torn the tank apart sereral times looking for him. Apparently he has been living back behind my protein skimmer all this time". He is nice and fat and healthy.
I moved him back to the display, and so far,he seems fine, the other fish are pretty much ignoring him, and he is already grazing on the rocks.
My worry now is, after I was sure he was missing for good, I got a good size midas blenny. So far, the midas has paid no mind to the tailspot, but, it has only been a few hours. Has anyone sucessfully kept two blennies in a 38 gallon tank? I am so happy to have my tailspot back, but I also really like my midas......
In sadder news, one of my clowns went carpet surfing sometime between last night and midday today. Im not sure how he got out, I have a screen top on the tank whic fits with less than a quarter inch gap. Maybe it was loose or he jumped hard enough to bounce it high enough to get out under it. Not sure, but deffinitely worried about it
