    I haven't made a post in awhile but my RSM 130D is doing great!

    I purchased a neon goby along with 2 other fish back during the first week of January 2011 and I have not seen the neon goby since I dropped him into the tank....until TODAY!!! During feeding I was standing at the back of my tank and who pops out of the rocks NEON GOBY!!! :bounce:

    I was sure the poor guy had died but nope hes alive and a fatty!

    Sorry the pic is so crappy I snapped it with my phone quickly before he disappeared again lol

    I am so excited I screamed while I was talking with my dad on my phone and then hungup on him to take the picture lol

    Yeah fish are surprising. They get food somehow when we're not looking. My firefish went M.I.A. for 3 weeks, too. I left him for dead...looked under rocks, searched for him with a flashlight, nada. One day, out he popped, looking rather healthy. Same goes with one of my chromis, who I discovered one day in the sump, after being missing for a couple of weeks.

    Wow that's crazy!! Surely I would have expected him to have been a goner by now! I'm glad he came out.
