    How serious is it if i cant remove a dead fish from my 100 litre Nano, because it is stuck behind the live rock where i cant get to him or find him??. Must i removed most of the rock to find him or will the hermits and shrimps (Cleaner and Dancing shrimp) eat him. It is a small yellowhead sleeper goby that died.

    Normally it's best to remove, especially from a nano, but as it is 100lts and a very small fish then you should get away with it, it you really can't get it, the bristleworms, hermits and snails will make short work of it, give it a day then do a 25% water change.

    Ok in my case,on my little cube after my PB died.
    Tank volume +-160l
    Did a 50l water change and replaced carbon.Thats the bad thing about small water volumes,very easy for the water to become toxic.

    The whole idea here was to let him get big,so i could move him to my big tank with all the larger Surgeons and Tangs.
