I picked up 2 modesta and placed them in the Q tank. No openings large enough to fit through. The female managed to jam her head sideways far enough out to extend the eye spines and hang there. Not bright enough to retract them and return to the water, no she hung there until I found her tonight. Everything out of the water dry and the rest ok. She was 5 inches and carrying eggs, I opened the body cavity and checked.
