    Hi All,

    I just wanted to know if anyone else's Regal thinks it is a dog?
    Mine picks up coral frags, small rocks etc and throw them all over the tank. If anything is not glue down or is light enough, she will pick it up and redecorate my tank :p

    It is funny at times but frustrating at other times as I once found two sps frags in my doughnut coral. Yesterday I saw my bumblebee snail thrown on top of a moon coral. Poor snail :lol:

    Mine has done the same with a green plating monti and some small frags. I placed them on the floor and when I got back later it was gone. Searched the tank and found them at the back. So i peeped from behind the wall and caught he carrying them around.
