Does anyone have any experience with these? I got one two days ago and haven't seen him since. The evening I put him in the tank he made a little house under one of my rocks. Then later that evening he came out and munched down on some sand. Now I haven't seen him for two days 8O The LFS said they like to jump out of your tank so I have all the openings covered tightly. I did that while he was acclimating. Just wondered if he could be stuck under my sand or squished himself digging under one of my rocks. I just don't want to go tearing my tank apart looking for him.
I got him because the LFS had one in one of their tanks with bad algae on the sand. I have the same problem and they said they are great for that. And if there isn't enough algae theirs comes up and eats the mysis shrimp. Any help would be appreciated.
