Just for fun - What has been banished to your sump?

I had a really pretty cowrie snail that decided it had an apetite for my devil's hand coral. Didnt want to get rid of him, so he keeps the sump in check :D

I have a very nasty Tomato Clown and a Red Reef Lobster I adopted that share a sump. In another sump I have a Yellow Margin Moray I adopted as well. These sumps are quite spacious and the animals get fed like everyone else, they'd just kill everyone else if they were in the main systems. I would like to find a good home for the Tomato and the Moray though..... any takers?..... didn't think so.

A hermit crab that likes to eat polyps from my favorite purple polyp montipora.

I removed him from that monti at least 12 times in a row before I banished his behind. I even un-banished him once a month ago, and he went right back to his favorite spot! grrr.

I have banished multiple mantis shrimp, several gorilla crabs, a mithrax that liked polyps, several whelks, and a bad blenny. I just recently had to change out my sump and all I found were 2 gorilla crabs, a few whelks and the blenny. I always liken it to the old Australia where all the prisoners were sent.

My mother-in-law banished a clam to her sump. Lets just say I found the shell. I cleaned it and it looks really pretty in my tank now. But that was gross.
