Oops rip green chromis

Recommended Posts

So I get back from a 2 week trip and have a new skimmer ready to be picked up.  So the wife and I decide to try to clean som of the algae growth and rearrange the live rock.   I find it hard to not pick up something (zoa, coral) when I am getting new hardware.  So we had to place some zoa's. During this process unnoticed by my wife or my self on or the green chromis decided to jump for it.   

Lesson learned count the fish when moving live rock.  We found said chromis after an unknown amount of time out of the water.

Other lesson learned might be don't go to coral shop right after getting off a plane from international travel before going home.  Will take a picture of the zoas once the water clears some form the cleaning and they open back up.

Maybe even one more lesson don't work on tank while under full jet lag?

I moved my tank over and it was 2 am. Decided it would be ok to leave the lights off  and let them adjust. The tank didn't come with a lid so I didn't think twice. The next morning I saw a crispy critter on the floor and felt so guilty for not putting anything over the top.

Now I've built a custom lid, restocked the tank and the new blenny is doing well and staying in the water

I have a kid on order for this.  Not sure it would of helped in this case.  And I still don't like the aquascape.  More adjustments are needed.  I am using the lesson from earlier today to wait.
