All the fish in QT are doing very well. They all seem to be getting along just fine. can't wait until I can move them over to the 125g! The chromis are grouping up like I had hoped and are very active in the tank, even the blenny is out an about alot.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Bad news i think. :-( I haven't seen Bob the sea hare in a few days. He is usually out and about as soon as the white lights go off but so far nothing. I have looked the best i can without breaking the tank down for him and so far haven't found him. I am hoping to break down the tank this weekend to do some re arranging and add more rock in so I hope I find him then, one way or another.

Since he's been missing for so long I've been testing my water for a spike in ammonia or anything but so far the readings are 0. I also don't have a huge clean up crew so I doubt if he died he's been eaten yet.

Should I do the tank breakdown tonight does anyone think? or should I just wait til saturday as planned?

My poor Bob, he was one of my first additions and has lasted over 8 months and gone through like 3 tank upgrades. I've heard they don't last very long in captivity, usually only a few months, but mine was doing so well, he probably has quadrupled in size at least. :-(

Sorry about your situation. If your readings are ok, and you don't want to breakdown the tank any earlier than Saturday, I would say wait.

yeah, I'm really bummed about possibly losing Bob. It's not looking good for him unfortunately. he blends in soo well and I have soo much rock it's almost gonna be impossible to find him. I'm still hoping he's in there alive and well but my hope is dwindling each day that passes by. :-(

Even if he has passed, at least he had a good life, he may have passed months sooner in a LFS tank.

Thats' what I keep telling myself, still hard to lose one of your pets. He was the coolest creature ever, he survived the tank plague and was huge. I got him when he was like 2 inches big and he was last seen at about 6 inches or longer. Just tough for me, I'll miss him. I used to watch him at night with the flashlight and I even put algae sheets near the sandbed for him to eat.

I'll miss him.....I won't be replacing him either, I think I had my luck with them and will move on....

They are definetely cool creatures, I had never heard of one or seen one until I looked at the thread. I don't blame you for not wanting another, sometimes you like osmething so much that you just can't replace it.
