I also had the exact same thing happen with my Diamond Watchman. He dug a hole under one of the rocks and was very shy the first day, but still came out (just didn't stray very far from his new home). The next day I didn't see him - not any sign of him. After going all day without a trace, I thought I should check to see if he jumped. Sure enough, he did and was on the floor in back of the tank stand. Unfortunately, I wasn't there to save him as DurTBear was. As usual, I did my research and saw they were jumpers, but I don't use a cover. So once again I made a mistake when I should have known better (seems like whenever something goes wrong for me in this hobby I should have seen it coming!). Bottom line is check around your tank and make sure he hasn't jumped. If not, he is probably just hiding out (although if you don't see him in a couple of days I would think something has happened to him). If you don't have a good cover, you probably need to get one.

IMO I would not go with a glass cover as it will cause poor gas exchange and lower your PH. I would use egg crate instead. You can get it at most hardware stores.



You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.
