    Bangaii

    Doing my weekly maintenance just happened to look in the sump and to my astonishment there
    is a baby bangaii about 1/4 long in the sump. That's some kind of miracle being anything in there
    goes thru a filter sock. Not to mention had never gone thru one of the return pipes.

    Oh, I love them, they are so cute when small. People sometimes find them in sumps, but there is no he got there through the sock, there are about 1/4" when born, iirc. One can probably survive is sump on copepods, otherwise enriched bbs. GL!

    Have raised a crew before maybe 30 of them. Cut this guy is at least a month old. Did not thing they would survive without special feeding. Move
    to another larger sump that's not as dangerous and much larger. hope to see him bigger in a few months
