First of I would like to introduce his highness that was so kind to really put on a show right at the front glass so I could finally take some decent pictures of this lovely creature.
When I looked at the pictures afterwards I just thought it looked so kingly with its crown of seaweed 😉
It was interesting to see how it removed its decoration that it had upon collection and replaced it with the stuff it found in my tank to blend in perfectly. Pictures below are on the day of collection.
Unfortunately electrons and electrical switchboards werent obedient during my absence from home over the Christmas period. One of the Powersupplies of the Pumps must have gotten damp or gotten a splash that tripped the fuseboard and caused a power outage for a good while.
When a friend came to check on the Aquariums all was dark and when he switched the fuse back on it looked quite dead. 😦 Not again! Not sure how long the power was out but it was more than 24h I guess.
When I came back home a week later the water was clean again and it was surprisingly good looking however my lovely two rock cook I got from Peter and the small corkwing where the causalities, what a shame! The two spotted Gobie now is the only surviving fish. Its Murphy’s Law that these things always happen when I am not at home for a while which is fairly rare!
But this is it now, its the second time I had this situation with powercuts when I am not home and I am going to look into getting a backup airpump to kick in once power is off.
