    after moving my nano into my office here in pmb I decided to get some fish to go with the sps so whent out and got 2 small chromis. All whent well untill this morning when one whent over the overflow and down to the sump as I had forgot to put a grating on the top of the overflow:blush:. I was busy with work stuff so thaught he could stay in the sump for a while.

    well got a break in the work and whent looking for him GONE I have striped the whole sump and he is no where to be seen looked around the tank incase he jumped in the pumps in the skimmer just GONE!!

    any ideas ir is this fish just been watching to much finding nemo and has some pelican friends or somthing

    You will find a huge crab someday, I had all sorts disappear, until after 2 years I discoverrd a gorilla crab the size of a golf ball, never knew he was lurking for 2 years. Not saying this is in your tank but was in mine
