    Well I was up til 3am this morning.

    One of the scooters (the female) was darting around the tank, as if she was a sea horse. If you have seen a pair of blennies in a mating dance then it was like that but she was been thrown around the tank sort of by the current.

    She managed to get trapped inbetween the weir comb and the glass 3 times.

    I eventually managed to rescue her and put her in a large net in the sump hoping that she would be fine.

    This morning she was still alive so I put her back into the main tank.

    No idea what went on, but it was if she was well and truly spooked in the tank.

    Met up with [MENTION=18526]AquaforestUK[/MENTION] at [MENTION=19268]FishNoChips[/MENTION] today, after letting Ian (my beatch of a sceretary answer his shop phone) and Darisuz wanting to meet there. So I hung on the [STRIKETHROUGH]3 hours[/STRIKETHROUGH] 40 minutes for Dariusz to get there on his [STRIKETHROUGH]moped[/STRIKETHROUGH] really fast motorbike.

    I must say a huge thanks to Dariusz as he bought me a stunning acan. :)

    Thank you dude really appreciate it. :)

    I have seen both of them this morning, so hopefully she was just stressed the other night. I was getting that gutted feeling, as they are real nice looking fish and there was nothing really that I could do for her.

    I believe the CB maybe part of the issue with the calliendrum, spotted him eating it today, as well as a few pecks at the acans. :(

    Corals or Copperband, which one goes, only one way to find out.
