Thanks again Cookiemn.. I read a few of your earlier posts about the Mantis you had in your tank and saw that you thought one was responsible for the leak in your tank..
I put the trap in last nite with two halfs of Silversides as bait, this morning, one 1/2 was gone and nothing in the bottle cept for a few unknown tiny mirco-critters.. If the Mantis got in and out at least he got a days worth of comfort with the trap, going to set a larger trap this evening.. Wish me luck...
And to Srgetz... When I first set up my SW
.. I had 4 damsels.. no LR
in the tank at that time, the very next day one of my damsels was missing.. I looked everywhere, and finally found the skeleton.. I suspect my Domino got him in the night.
But read on Srgetz..... Damsels are know to be aggressive to the same exact species as well as to other damsels... what I found interesting is that the Domino I wanted to flush down the crapper has turned out to be the best fish in my tank... He continually guards my clown..
Maybe it's just a bit of survival of the fittest?? If you've heard the clicking or tapping sound against your glass, be persistent in your search for a Mantis or if your lucky a Pistol shrimp... otherwise and perhaps fortunate a damsel is only performing part of nature.
I am so new here that I don't want anyone taking my word for anything.. please read, and research every opportunity you get..
May your tank prosper.. WildFlower
