RIP wrasse

Well, I've certainly read stories about wrasses and their jumping tendencies but have never experienced it before--until now.

It turns out that my sixline wrasse did a little carpet surfing. Didn't find him until after rigor mortise had set in. Poor little guy.

I didn't think I need a top because my light sits up there and is only 3 or 4 inches above the tank and almost covers it. I guess I was wrong!

ACK! Sorry for your loss. You can use egg crate to cover the top...

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

I lost mine through a 1" hole in the back of my canopy, where he immediately became a fresh snack for my girlfriend's cat. If there is a hole a sixline will find it.
