So the fish that's been living in my sump found his way into the second chamber, and then into the skimmer this morning. :puke:

well at least i don't have to worry about him living in there anymore... the skimmer seems ok.

oh and my urchin decide he needed to eat the body of one of my candy canes (luckily not my florsecent one). it's just been one of those days!

well first he found his way into the chamber where the skimmer is housed (he was living one chamber over from it for months). Then he swam by the pump intake and got sucked into it. I heard a very loud slurping sound and then the skimmer bubbles all fell. When hubby got home he took apart the pump and found what was left of the fish in there.

Snails and hermits will find their way in there, if you have any in the sump/fuge. I actually found a hermit shell (hermit was long gone) in the venturi of my old lifereef venturi skimmer.
