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...

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.
