Nope. lol I'm kinda scared to actually. I have heard so many horror stories about them getting sucked up in stuff. My Bob was great. He never even got near anything that could hurt him, such a smart little critter. Still makes me sad to think he just disappeared one day never to be seen again. :-( Thats gotta be the worst feeling, never knowing what actually happened.

I did just post a new thread with my huge shopping list for wednesday. I LOVE getting new guys for my tanks! Thats gotta be the best feeling.

Bob was a Bali sea hare. He would eat algae sheets off a clip for me and overall was an easy to keep guy. I researched the sea hares and the Bali one was also the least likely to ink. Mine never inked once, I'd be able to put him in my hand and he never had any issue with it. Not sure if i got lucky or not, everyone has a horror story of one inking and nuking their tanks. lol

Got a little ahead of my stocking today, lol.....Picked up a dusky jawfish for $5 so i couldn't resist.
He went into the tank and was gone under the rocks. Hopefully I get to see him more and he's just getting used to the tank.

Still plan on adding the inverts as well as a pistol shrimp/goby combo sometime this week or next, hopefully will be ordering tomorrow.

Pictures to come!

Soooo, finally got the rockwork to where i am satisfied with it and moved some corals over from the 125g reef. So far I have the dusky jawfish, a really nice hammer, a great duncan and a rehabbing acan from the 20g rimless. The hammer started with one head and nnow has about 8 heads on it, the duncan, same story, was one head now is like 17 or so. lol The acan was on a rock I forgot about in the 20g rimless and it sat without light for a few weeks so I thought it was dead for sure. BUT it has started coming back since I put it in this cube, hopefully it will return to it's former glory!

Took some pictures, can't really catch the jawfish, he is one anti social little fish!
Thanks for looking everyone!

I believe they are easy to keep. Mine darts out to catch food but otherwise he stays in his huge cave system he already built. lol They are pretty hardy and not very expensive at all, well, unless you go with a blue jawfish which in my opinion are super cool looking! lol But at $100 or so too rich for my blood. hehe...

Hoping that the jawfish will get along with a shrimp goby and pistol shrimp cause I plan on adding them next week or so. The caves he dug are pretty extensive so there should be room for all of them. The jawfish is a tiny little fellow too, maybe an inch and a half right now, looks like he will at least double in size as he grows up.

So I went and did a little local shopping today instead of ordering everything at once like I planned. lol

I picked up:
2 emerald crabs
2 bright red fiddler crabs
6 astreas
20 blue hermits
Also grabbed a large frag of lunar eclipse zooas, couldnt resist. lol

The jawfish is still in hiding too, I can just see his head sticking out, cool to see but not at all active. I ordered some fish for next week too from the LFS, I am getting a candycane pistol shrimp and an orange spot goby to go with it. They should be in on tuesday and i will hopefully pick them up Friday.

Still thinking of what else to add to the tank.....I do wanna give the tank a chance to settle in though too so I probably wont get any more fish until next month. I was thinking of designer clowns or perculas if I am low on cash lol. Have no idea what else I could add though. It's gotta be small and active so I'm coming up empty as far as ideas. hehe...
