Sup all.. just an update. the blue tang is doing EXCELLENT... definitly a soldier!! not too bright, but tough... she should know NOT to swim near the clam, but still does!!! but ya, clam and tang doing well!
I have had my blue hippo tang since it was 1/2 inch and for over 2yrs. It is now almost 6 inches.
Today the tang decided to nip on my clam..
AND OH MY GOD THE CLAM GRIPPED THE HELL OUT OF MY TANG!!
I tried to use my TWO hands to OPEN this clam, but God help me... I could not do it at all!! CLAMS HAVE SUCH A STRONG GRIP!!
Im AMAZED at the clams defensive instinct, and at the same time, devasted by the soon to be loss of my tang!
I took the clam out with my tang attached to it in a large bowl..
Then I used a flat tool to pry the clam open just a tad bit to release my tang...
the tang came out, but had its face looking totally flat.. posssibly all bones broken.. it went behind some rock and will die most likley...
I HAD MY TANG FOR 2 YRS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH
I know its nature, but DAMNNNNNNNNNNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HAVE YOU EVER SEEN SOMETHING LIKE THIS!!! DEVASTATING!
ok i got to admit i laughed with the wife over the way you told your story but as soon as i scrolled down and saw the pics i was dieing on the floor laughing my wife thinks its a wind up.
but into total i don't meen to sound horrible just took me buy surprise i think lol
hey guys, if you didnt read the thread, which im guessing most of you didnt, in post #81, he stated that the tang is doing excellent.
i doubt that he even checks this thread anymore, as it is over a year old....
EDIT: the OP's last post on this board was in Feb. 2008, just sayin'
