    i got him in a different piece of live rock. i put it in fresh water to get him to come out. what do i do with the live rock after i get him out, and how much exposure to tap water will it take to kill him?

    Instead of killing him,why not trade him at the LFS?
    Those are just too cool an animal to kill.

    Then again, if you are going to kill it, at least have the courtesy to put in him in a bowl of tequila or vodka...at least then when he's dead you have have yourself an enjoyable bowl of cereal; personally I'm more of a Scotch and Cap'n Crunch kind of guy, but everyone has their own preferences :mrgreen:

    All joking aside...if you can get it out alive; turn it into your LFS; someone will want it, and you may get nice little credit

    I hate to say it,but I wouldnt put it back in my tank.
    The fresh water has killed 99.9% of the life that was on that rock.So you'll have to give it time to completely dry out and and the die-off to completely decay before you can put it back in the tank.

    rdang, I'm sorry and disappointed that you found it necessary to kill one of God's precious creatures. Murderer. :mrgreen:
