    its not a pest but a annoyance. These two guys drive me nuts.. I have lost a couple rics, a hammer, some zoas. The pistol digs all day makeing doors out of my frags. I tried blocking them off with some shells but that little guy is strong. They are really cool, and my fiance thinks its the funniest thing ever..

    This little guy is both a pest and annoyance. He keeps removing the outer mag float, which then sends the inner mag float tumbling all over my tank and bumping into rocks and corals. I would then have to stick my arm in the water to retrieve it. Sigh.

    There aren't more pictures of pesky fish and shrimp, annoying palys, overgrowing monti/acros, bristle worms, hermit crabs or sponges?

    I've got a whole family tree of bristleworms. They just won't get together for a family picture

    Besides photo-bombing, trigger is in the habit of feeding itself. Flipping over Acans to get to the "tasty" bristleworms that hide underneath. Not to mention eating a few cleaner shrimp.
