There's another thread this is being discussed in. Mine was out all the time for months. Lately, he just hangs out in the rockwork. I hadn't seen him for 3 days then today I caught a glimpse of him swimming under some rock. If your fish is being harassed it will hide. Mine isn't being bothered at all that I can tell, it just likes the rockwork. It kinda sucks, but I get excited now when I see him just because he's not dead.

I put mine in the tank and it disappeared for a week. Now it is out all the time. Don't worry you will soon see more of your fish.

Ok, that is officially the coolest fish I have ever seen. I will start a SW tank just so I can get that fish.
