    Look what we found in the sump today while I was cleaning the skimmer.....should I just leave it there for a while and drop a few bits of flake food in there every other day? IMG_20171021_100858449.jpg

    Well bangai are live breeders IIRC, so putting then back in with mom and dad might not be such a bad idea.

    Yeah it's weird cause I have a gate valve and a strainer on my main overflow....and it has small slots...only the emergency is totally free. Now. Wonder if I have a bunch stuck in my overflow

    Ours have always eaten their young after the male has starved and held the babies in his mouth all month. We read to put a hairbrush into the tank to replicate the spiny urchins the babies usually hide in. It never worked for us though. Exciting!!

    I had 2 big longspine urchins in my tank, but got rid of them because they were getting too big and really restricting space in a 180. spines almost a foot long. im sure the baby cardinals would love those if i still had them lol. when i first got my cardinal he was very small and he would hang out in the urchin most of the time

    @Klems Are you interested in an urchin? If so, I have some like in the photo. Don't know how long the spines are - couple inches long on each side? maybe not - that would be 6" diam. urchin. Not sure, but I could bring one home from school Monday. Not sure where you are located.

    @Klems Just remembered I could swipe one from my MIL's clown + algae tank. I think it's the largest.

    Do they sell fake long spine urchins? Like plastic versions you don't have to worry about getting too large? :D

    No thank you....I did move the baby into the DT last night....he seemed to fighting the current and we were waiting for the mom/dad to notice it.....then 30 minutes later we couldn't find it....not sure if the parents are holding it in their mouth or it's hiding out somewhere....only time will tell.
