New pics! I really need to get this thing out. It’s been in krakens cave and kraken has been hiding out elsewhere.

I’m going to have to set a trap. Problem is, I’ll catch all my snails, crabs and probably a starfish arm with the size of the hole I have to make :(

That would be totally cool. Just got home from lfs. They had a rock full of starry blennies I should have taken a picture. Total characters think im going to go back and get one tomorrow because I left with a green spotted filefish today:) Super cool.

Can't leave this thread without a little Deadpool spam:) He's starting to color up for me.

A couple new goodies! I saw this massive toadstool in @Flippers4pups tank a couple years ago and I’ve been wanting one ever since. I finally got not only one baby toad, but TWO!! They are open and happy after the lights came on! ;Smuggrin

also, because she’s bossy and was yelling at me from her perch.

I guess this is how my flasher wrasse sleeps. I thought he was dead but surprise!! He’s not! I couldn’t get a picture but wrassehole sleeps in a hole on the back of this rock. Why do they sleep together if they fight so much?

I did some aiptasia and vermetid snail control today. I removed blennys favorite rock & was shocked that she was still inside the rock when I pulled it out! I also picked up a fish trap today...wrasseholes days are limited.

Flashers are funny. I've thought mine was dead several times...lying on the sand bed. He is still very easily spooked...and hates the Mag Float!

Good luck catching wrassehole. If I can catch a six-line wrasse (which took days of stalking that evil fish), you can catch wrassehole! ;Joyful

So day two of aiptasia and vermetid snail control. I couldnt find two of the aips when I took the rock out and the third is on a base rock that’s buried in my sand; I don’t want to take it out so I’m going to have to epoxy over it as is. The whole tank is cloudy with particulate and the vermetids I didn’t get are having a hay day with everything blowing around;Facepalm;Shifty I upped the return flow and put a sock on so I hope it clears soon.

I cleared a semi flat spot on the bottom so I can fit this massive fish trap I got. I want to catch my ruby head wrasse and also this gigantic bristle worm.;Yuck When it’s not stretched out it’s a little slimmer than a sharpie markero_O no idea how long since it never fully leaves its hole.

Needless to say, my tank looks terrible at the moment and my fish are very upset with all the moving around. I also busted the top off the only acro that is actually growing in my tank :(

It’s massive. It shares meals of clam in a shell with my starfish but I’m not down with that...it’s too big and has to go. Trying to figure out how to catch the worm only and not any of the other critters I want to keep. I have a breeding population of marginella snails and I’m positive my starfish will squeeze her fat butt in the trap too.

HAHA... Your fingers will work just fine ;) I like @fishguy242 idea of just out of reach... a little extension and WHAM no more tank freeloaders.
