just moved him out of the net breeder and into the main tank. supprisingly he has not once touched the sand bed, and has been perching on the top of rocks like a hawk fish.

im afraid this morning dr. snuggles died, he somehow managed to get around stuck intake to my protine skimmer even tho it was covered with pantyhose. it was horrible removing him from it, this is prob the worst i have ever felt in my almost 6 years of keeping salt water creatures

Very sorry that you lost Dr. Snuggles.
RIP:angelpus: (We need an angel cuttle)

Was the panty hose covering loose, like a little bag, or stretched tightly? Maybe this information would help other ceph owners.

it was tight the cuttle was stuck to the side of it, the skimmer was a bak pak so it used a modified rio powerhead, and the cuttle got stuck to the intake. imjust glad that i had the panty hose or else it would have chopped him up. but i dono, hopefuly ill be able to get another one, but does anyone know of a way in which to gaurd against this happening again.
