    My Tiger Pistol Shirmp loves to play hide and go seek with my coral frags. The most recent casualty was my 5 eyed tyree alien eye frag that turned neon green it was a very interesting piece that i have not found any where i even sifted my gravel as best as i could!...Does any one else have any stories or coral bandits

    I once had a jawfish that made its burrow out of about 15 frag plugs over night. Thankfully I got them all back.

    My Dusky Jawfish (R.I.P.) that I had in my tank for over 5 years was over 6" long. He used to take my frag plugs out of my racks and use them as potted plants around the outside of his hole. He would redecorate every day with new frags and I had to always rescue them. Here is a picture of him when he was young and pulled a frag plug with zoas on it.

    Gobies typically do not have that type of behavior, but the pistol certainly will plow under and frags within 4" of their hole.....and they dig new holes all the time.

    My goby/pistol pair live under an Alternative Reefs frag rock and over time the entire rock and frags gets buried. Recently lost a nice frag of lunar eclipse palys due to being buried too long.

    Nice pic bob...that fish almost doesn't look evil in that shot.

    nice jawfish pic. i have one hermit who decided he was going to be an alpha male and move into the largest shell he could find. i should have took pics then because now it looks like it fits him and was his all along. the tiny crab hauled around this shell that was at least 4 sizes bigger than the last one,lol. not a thin little snail shell either. it was one that used to house an electric blue knuckle crab. real thick with knobs all over it.

    anyways, i just had to move him because i got sick of putting frags back in place. 1 or 2 wasnt terrible but the other night it was like 6 of them.

    I have had experiences with jawfish (bluespots) that bury anything on the bottom of the tank! That is why I dont have one now
