Wonderful day

The other day I tore down my 29 SW tank. It really pained me to do so because I didnt want to get rid of my arc eyed hawkfish but I knew he would wreck my invert collection in my 125 gallon reef tank. I also had a tiger cowrie that was going to go in the reef tank. I had several rocks that had purple mushrooms on it and I sold them to the LFS along with the arceyed hawkfish. After tearing the tank down I could not find the cowrie. Today I went to the LFS and got a double treat. The cowrie was in the tank where the owner put my mushrooms. I was so glad to get him back. I also learned that my hawkfish was sold to someone this morning with a very large tank. I`m sure he`ll love it in a bigger tank. That really made my day. Just wanted to share.

Those cowries are awesome little/big guys! I've yet to see any at my LFS. I'm glad to hear your fish found a new home quickly.
