The beloved unicorn tang fish in the large saltwater tank at The Sandbar has suffered an traumatic injury.

Bob, which is believed to be the name bestowed on the fish by the resident fish-namer Coleen, now sports a broken nose and is left with a bloody-looking stump in place of the horn that previously extended from his nose.

Sources close to the incident believe that Bob was swimming at an abnormal rate of speed around the tank and crashed into the wall. Witnesses have seen the fish run into the wall on previous occasions; however, Sandbar staff has been unable to locate any witnesses to the recent, and most serious, incident.

If you have any information regarding this accident, please leave a comment.


(It was hard to get a decent picture of the injury due to a variety of complicating factors: the glass, the glare created by the sun, and the fact that Bob seemed very much aware that I was trying to take a picture and subsequently tried to hide.)
