What a hell of a day today....
Got up nice and early for work this morning to discover my brace on my tank had detached from back glass ....
front/back had moved apart enough to get my little finger in the gap...
luckily it didnt go pop on me..
PANIC PANIC PANIC.
Had to do an emergency move of all inhabitants and stock etc to my old tank which luckily was in my garage.

5 hours later and all was up and running again.
i have cleaned and siliconed the brace back into place and now have the joy of waiting for the silicone to fully cure etc.

This is not an experience I want to experience again..
I would hate to think the stress this would have been had it of failed completely.

To update a little more , no fresh WS as of yet , 6 days left on the medic , don't think my sand sifting star fish is too chuffed with the every second/third day sand bed hooverings , I think I may try to bury some pellets through the sand for it . My male clown had decided to join the shoal of chromis after loosing the female to the weir and seems quite happy swimming around with them at the moment .

Ah, for some reason (take your pick between senility or plain stupidity) I didn't see the top pick when I first looked. But yes, that IS the chap. Thanks for that.

Difficult to ID it precisely from that, but pretty well the same. The colour, shape and pincers look spot on. Had a fondness for zoas.....May he rest in peace  8D

How about hitch hiker crabs? I have had a red eyed beasty which I imagine came in as an egg or as a tiny crab on a rock with a coral on it. It grew to about 35 mm diameter and killed an awful lot of stuff before I sat up at night and caught the wretched thing. Would have been interesting to have ID'd it. It had pincers like bolt cutters.

Like this one ? https://reefbase.co.uk/reefbase-id-database/xanthid-crab/

I think the fish I've had go over the weir were due to lights being switched on in the dark room after lights off , I pulled my female clown off of the grate I had over the weir a couple of times before she went over for the last time and died .
