He swims to the front of the tank and around with my yellow tang when I walk in the room from work and now when I sit and watch the tank he hides again. Did yours do this too?
Yes mine did/does. He is the most skiddish fish we have for sure... He gets spooked very easily. For the first week he never came out of his hiding spot but now i usually see him at the front. Just give it some time and go up to the tank slowly

Mrc i wish!! I would love to have another tank for fish only... But my parents would disagree

We just made 200 bucks in an hour and a half so we now have 300 dollars to spend. Thinking about putting a sump in our stand under the RSM. Not a whole lot of space for a tank, but its very easy to plumb into the tank because it is set up for a sump. Heres a quick pic of our stand, we will remove the shelf on the right side for it to fit. Please leave any suggestions, and if anyone knows what size tank would fit that would be greatly appreciated

It's hard to say without measurements but it looks like you could fit a 29 if you had everything out or otherwise a 15H or 20H. Should be a fun project.

Hi looking good Nu Nu the eel Simply measure the area and see what you can fit inside,allowing a little room for discrepancies. Could you fit a sump alongside and conceal it an a home made cabinet?

you be surprised to find how well something that big can hide,
my coral banded shrimp find ways into nooks and cranny's to hide
ones 3 1/2 inch others almost 6 inches now he got huge and they both hide real good when they want it's amazing the places they hide in ,
I think he'll keep you on your toes looking than pop out to eat
it's fun trying to find their best hiding spots
