    no pictures of him, as there is no way I can get one, but I have a pearly jawfish living in my refuge

    [​IMG][​IMG]

    This is a picture of my sump to show you how stupid it is designed. It is an Eshopp and the refug is behind the black wall (can see where light is). Well we were working on the pumps a couple days ago, when I saw what appeared to be something swimming in the corner of the fuge. It was my jawfish and there is not enough headroom to get to him. I am hoping my leopard wrasse is also back there as he had just disappeared one day. I have since blocked the overflows. I had found my bicolor blenny swimming around in my sump one day! So I have a whole bunch of fish in my sump!::)

    I have banished a white hermit crab and other bad crabs into the sump. However, they will be Bob's next meal (mantis shrimp)

    Hey!!!! That's what I was going to say!!!!! Not. Yeah, a Stomatella. What is a stomatella? Is that like a Stoma (or Stomata---plural form)? You know, that (those) very tiny opening(s) on the underneath side of a leaf that is (are) responsible for gas exchange? Am I close? Is it that? Do I get 60 points? Do I? Huh? Do I?

    I have some snails, a few Hermits, a Pepermint shrimp that was in a rock when I out it in the sump and I cant get the little f'er out. I also have a large brittle star and last but not least I have a large (3") Jewel Damsel that was rearranging my corals in my display to his liking but not mine, living down there.

    It was my joke about giving everyone negative-60 karma for not liking my awesome pictures. Just a joke. Wouldn't even consider it.
