    i had a picasso trigger once, while re aquascaping we removed the rocks from the tank......about 30 minutes later he jumped out the rock onto the floor......alive

    placed him back in the tank.......he lived !:thumbup:

    I was chasing a pyjama tang in salt rock for ages and then he dissappered - I was so upset and just continued to the next rockpool looking for more fish. My net must of been out the water a good few times and after a while i decided to empty it and lo and behold the tang was in my net the whole time:) I dunno if he is slightly brain dead but he is still in my tank:thumbup:

    haha! very similar to what happened to me.. i came across this stunner of a anthias. it was in a tiny rock pool (100l) and i was amped to add it to my shoal. so.. i got a bucket and started emptying the pool (would be around 1000l pool at high tide) i hunted every where for it.. couldnt find it. so i was about to pack up when i check it high and dry on on some seaweed. must of been there for like 5min atleast! he was still alive until my tank crashed
