Problem is I live 2 hours+ from the nearest black net. lol.
After several hours of trying to net the angel I gave up... My wife decided to try during the day today while she was home... again no luck. I found the angel was very fearful of the net... so I just left the nets in the tank to keep him away from some of my SPS
If I had more time I would have tried a trap - but this guy was not leaving my coral alone so I had to make a decision and went with saving my coral. Took me about 3 hours start to finish. What a pain in the Arse! I hope I don't have to do that again for a while! And of course I had to basically take out every single rock in order to catch the Angel. I decided that while I had my rock out I would go ahead and catch the female Blue Jaw Trigger too... I like the Triggers a lot, but they are pigs... I will keep the male and sell/trade the female.
It is a beautiful fish, but here is the little demon... I wish I could keep it as it has such great color but I like my coral more. Will find a good home for him. Until that point he is sharing my sump refugium with the trigger.
I just took one (really bad) photo as I was pulling all the rock out... I used my sump and two large bins to hold my rock/coral.
Fortunately I don't think I damaged any coral or injured any fish/shrimp etc... Everyone is accounted for and all the coral was opening up within an hour of being back in the display tank. I also took advantage of this opportunity to frag some of my zoas, mushrooms, palys, & star polyps.
Here it is an hour after the demo - I made several changes, moved things around... hopefully I will like it better.
Here are some shots of a couple new additions:
Sixline Wrasse (bad shot)
Hope to be adding more soon.
Should be picking up my 180 this weekend.
