The prodigal Fish returns
« on: August 26, 2005, 08:55:49 AM »
I had lost my Engineer Goby 3-4 weeks ago.  I chalked it up to the usual fish loss.  He was so pretty and big when I lost him that it was a little upsetting.   I checked every where for him, the sump, overflow, and under rocks.  So last night I was doing a little maintenance on the pumps and I see this little black movement from underneath one of the pumps.  So I sit back and watch and sure enough I see the EG pop his head out and wiggle around.  I was so glad to have found him.  He's a little thin but he has gotten really long and his color markings are really showing up nicely.  I put back in the display tank and hopefully he will fatten back up.

Yeah I have seen a few folks with the screen now and I may add that to my overflow.  I thought he was just too smart for that! :D  

He is hiding most of the time now when before he was out all day and night.  Might be going through a little re-acclimation process?  Or maybe growing into his normal behavior.  The ones that Les has hide quite a bit and his Gobies are way bigger than the one in my tank.  The markings on mine have changed to look like the ones Les' Gobies have.  Truly remarkable and beautiful.  I may go buy another one and get him a buddy!

Well he was out today when it was feeding time so he is eating well.  I think the engineer in him has come out since has dug himself a little cave under a rock.  I saw him carrying rubble in his mouth away from his new home.  I can't get over how pretty he has become.
