Thanks guys for the nice words. It's always tough losing a fish, especially if you've had him for awhile. :-( Whats even worse is I bet the barnacle blenny was harassing him and most likely caused him to jump. They had been fighting over a burrow since I put the blenny in.
Saw the green goby again last night, he doesnt come out during the day now, just at night with the lights out. lol This tank is so much bigger than it looks kinda, I lose all the small fish in it hehe....even the clowns are in the back behind the rocks. Just weird.......

LOL, like an invisible dog fence?

I've had fish jump out of a tank covered with eggcrate as well, if they want out they will find a way unfortunately. :-(

Finally got the skimmer for this tank. Also picked up a 10 head or so acan while i was at it. The skimmer is already pulling some gunk from the tank even though it's only been in one day.

Getting a good amount of the green fuzz algae on the glass daily, makes the tank look like crap. lol Also had to cut my lights back, I am roasting the corals :-( Now have the whites on for 6 hours and the blues for 10. I think I may have lost my cephastrea(sp?), between the sand getting dumped on it and the high led lighting it is NOT looking so good.

Some pictures of course or it wouldnt be me!
