The jawfish is just claiming the overflow as his territory. Silly fish.

I've fished him out of each side once plus the filter sock. Need away to keep him in the DT any ideas. I hate to see a $100 fish living in the corner overflow behind the PVC.

Just screen off the overflow with a UV rated screen that is aquarium safe (plastic) or some egg crate (suspended ceiling light diffuser is what its called at lowe's/HD) and it should keep him out. You may want to consider covering the whole tank with a screen because if he is jumping into the overflow he will jump out of the tank as well.

Yetee He could be going through the pipe to the overflow... At least if she's fished him out of the other side 3 times that would be my guess but yeah a screen is needed

He is jumping into the overflow, it's a reef ready setup. So yes need to get a covering. He isn't jumping out because I have a full glass cover. I know a lot of people don't agree with the lid but between the jawfish and the 3 wrasse I already have plus the wrasse harem I want to get it's a necessity.

Also, the second tang isn't happening. Talked her out of it in this tank and instead going to put it in her fish only. So will the wrasse harem work with the above list?

He is back in the overflow. I think I'll let him stay there a couple days. I fed him back there today. I'll get him out when I have a plan to keep him out. Which means probably Friday when I'm off work next.

Working is getting in the way of my fish time. I'm way behind on everyone's threads. Some more pictures:
