My Algae blenny is stoopid! #1
Ive had to rescue him from my sump no less than 3 times now, he obviously likes the algae on my overflow wier and keeps getting sucked down it!!

I tried to fashion a mesh guard but that didnt work - he knocked it off then got sucked down!

Hopefully new one will keep him out :)

Re: My Algae blenny is stoopid! #3
Thing is it cant have been a pleasant journey down - it levels off to horizontal for about 12 inches so he must have had to shuffle and flip his way down! - Also have a feeling my jewel anenome is in there somewhere as cant find it in my tank anywhere! So if he was open it would have been worse!

well this one is making me believe otherwise.

I think the whole "headbutting" the glass adds to it hehe - he is fine tho - doesnt seem traumatised by the experience!
