i took in a bunch of healthy and mature fish from a local hobbyist when i was first starting to have many tanks in my house. one of the bristlenose plecos he gave me jumped out the first night and i found him in the morning. not knowing what to do i threw him back in and he was alive later that day...until it got wedged between a rock and the heater and died :(

Tongan Canary Blenny ((Meiacanthus tongaensis).

A hallway light got turned on in the middle of the night and, even though the tank was in an adjacent room, the flash must've startled it so much that it shot straight up out of the water. Found it on the floor the next morning.

I've been a Lidder ever since.

TANK TALK: What’s the furthest you’ve travelled for a reef related experience or acquisition?
160 miles (2.5 hrs) for a reef club meeting.

Also same distance for occasional visits to NELFSs (Not-Exactly-Local-Fish-Stores ... I live in a bit of a reefkeeper no man's land).

Even though I live in Southern California, it took me 4 hours to drive to RAP in Anaheim last year on a Friday afternoon. Needless to say, I drove over in the early morning this year on Friday and got early check-in at hotel at 12:30pm! Went to the bar, had a beer and watched all the vendors arriving- lesson learned!

TANK TALK: Do you already own and use any Avast equipment? If so, what is your favorite and why? If not, is there anything at the top of your list?
I don’t own any and that’s why I entered contest. I really need an auto feeder and would love to try the Reef Jerky

Official Entry: My dad will be starting his tank back up this Christmas, after I give him a ton of new equipment! It's a Biocube 29 with the top lid and top frame removed. when he had it running he had this ugly diy lid that was basically just acrylic with holes cut into it. It would warp all the time. I'd love to win a new custom lid for his tank!

I love this site. So giving!

Had a really cool Sleeper Blue Dot Goby, that my wife was in love with and checked on everyday. He jumped out of a small gap in the lid near some piping. He had to jump while we where on vaction out of state and her friend was checking on the tanks and out cat. She's the one who found him all dried up on carpet and let us know. My wife was supper bummed out.

For me it was the loss of the first clownfish I raised from an egg, Omen. He was the lone survivor and carpet surfed after about 3 years when I forgot to replace the lid one day on lunch :<
