    My stupid four line Hawian wrasse decided to take up residence in the overflow.  Im not talking a CPR either.  Hes down in the bottom of the built in one.  Yeah the one with all the PVC running in and out of it.  I gues Iff I cant get him out any other way I can shut down the pump and take the pipes out and try to get him that way.  Aah yes, I can take out the drain stand pipe and let him get washed down to the sump to a waiting net.  Thanks everyone for letting me think openly on the forums:) I dont know why I didnt come here sooner.

    Thats funny. I read a post where a lady bought a small clown & it immediately disappeared when she put it in the tank. She thought it died & the clean up crew took care of it. Then she was cleaning out her overflows & found it 2 years later & it was big.

    I've had my clowns jump into my overflow before. Luckily, I can see up into my overflows from under the tank, so I was able to see where they were and eventually net them.

    That would really suck. Good luck getting him out!

    I had had a couple of snails crawl al the way down my drain pipe and get stuck in the ball valve. I had to take everything apart it sucked. Good luck with him. When can i stop over and take a look at the new tank.
