Thanks. Sorry about your blenny too, they are really cool fish. :-( I guess sometimes things just happen without rhyme or reason. It's still hard though, losing a fish you've grown to love. I take it too personally I guess, but that may be a good thing.

Are you going to replace your blenny? I don't think i will get another midas, kinda turned off to the whole idea now.

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

Just fed the tank and no sign of him. :-( He was always front and center for food. I'm gonna search the sump area again, I know he's not around the tank or floor as I just checked again. Just wishful thinking. But thanks

I've noticed in our hobby that you kinda have to distance yourself just a little bit from the fish or else it breaks your heart when you lose one. But that's not always possible, especially with favorites.

They are getting me a diamond, and a helfrichi firefish.
I need a sand sifter, and I have wanted a helfrichi since before I even started this tank.

I hope you find the blenny.

I lost one of my favorite fish (banner fish) a few months ago. He was the biggest (4.5in) and most active fish in the tank, I searched everywhere-sump, floor, overflow behind rocks he just disappeared. He was too big for the cuc to make him disappear overnight. I never found out what happened to him. I have no plans to replace him his personality was unique.

Is it unusual to just "lose" a fish in a 125g tank with 250+lbs of live rock? One of my clowns went missing a bit over a month ago and I never found him either. i also had a chromi go missing but I found his body underneath in my cabinet.

Should i be worried? Is there some killer in my tank or just bum luck? Water parameters are excellent so it's not that. ( amm 0, trite 0, trate-5! eek, ph 8.0, salinity 1.0255)

Anyone have any ideas or suggestions? I waited for weeks to get that fish and got it for a really good price too so I'm really bummed. Not sure I want to put another one in even. Just plain old discouraging. :-(
Really sorry about that carey.

Sorry bout your Blenny Carey. Hope he pokes his head out. I just took a coral out of my dt. Looks like it's gonna be history too. No clue there either so I think there is a ghost floating around our tanks sneaking them out on us.

Sorry about your coral, i had one of my early brain corals bleach out on me, it was my first coral fatality and I'm not really sure why it bleached. :-(

Maybe it will perk up yet, I've had some that didn't look too great at times and it just needed some patience.
