    Magic frags, they do the disappearing trick

    i just want to take a moment of my day to spread my pain, my lees blue tubs are mia(not the first of my frags to vanish) i think my buldozers-snails- are the culprits. maybe i am mounting them wrong but i am so sick of seeing my tank rearranged, my jawfish loves to pick up loose things in the tank as well and has an artistic approach to rearranging loose tidbits in the tank.

    have any of you had issues of this happening???I know this stuff is part of the game but i cant help but be frustrated..

    This definately has happened to most of us I think. I used to have a red hawiian pencil urchin that would knock things behind the rockwork and wouldn't be found until I rearanged things several months later. My tiger pistol shrimp will literally go out looking for frags, and drag them back into his tunnels to reinforce his entrances, or will burry things just by excavating large amounts of the substrate. It does get frustrating, but for every frag I lose, I think of how well the others have done.

    HAHAHA, I just chewed out my twin spot wrasse this evening for throwing the frags on the frag racks onto the floor of the tank. He does it every day. I pick them up and he throws them off when I am not looking. I caught him just this afternoon picking one up and tossing it. Such a bratt.

    This is funny. I don't have any evil fish but my snails do love to push my things out of their way and they end up all over the place.

    My starfish pushed one of my ausi acan frags into an acan echinata frag and the echinata ate the ausi acan. Be careful what you put where if your critters are moving them around. They could end up too close to something that will kill them.

    LOL. I just got a new Green carpet anemone this week. After he settles I will be able to take everything off my frag racks.
