Ok, so I have personally packed everything over from the old tank to this new one. Every piece of rock was examined before it went in (because of Aptasias and bad crabs) and I have not received any corals other than the ones I had in my old tank.

So, the only way this new addition came in must have been with the big waterfill we did or through the sand I collected at Mission Rocks, but, the water went through a pump (twice), so I would love to know where all this creatures comes from that I from time to time find in my tank.

Please Id this one my wife found 02 days ago. Did not believe her at first until I saw it this morning...

Nope, cannot find it. It is see-through.It has Gills and fins like a fish. About 50mm in length. The mouth is also flattish, not the same as an eel that goes "backwords"

Thanks, but I put it back into the main display. If he did come with the sand, at least he is back onto the sand. But will definately not kill it now, 1st wanna see what it really is.

Copied...you need to try and keep ...it.... alive as long as possible. There are a number of pelagic s that we still.... do not know where trhe "Wild Thing Takes Place". This could be one of those missing links.

Nah,just joking, but.... What I have seen the last 02 days- This fish stays like 24 hours a day with the Starfish (new one:whistling: - yes Dean;) , I'm still trying to figure out as to how to get your one to you as well as Afsal's Dolphin Fish) I got a couple of days ago. But he did not come with the starfish as my wife saw him (the fish) before the starfish's arrival...
