I purchased a royal gamma 5 days ago. I know they are very timid fish so I assumed it would hide for a couple days before it comes out with it's normal personality.
Today, I got worried about it since everything I read said it should have at least been out for a little bit. Plus it needed to eat.
So I decided to move my live rock one by one looking for my missing fish. As I lifted each rock I inspected the caves and any place a fish could be stuck. And as I pull out the last one, still no sign of my royal gamma. 😢
I also searched my filter, inspecting everything very thoroughly trying to find my fish. And still no sign.
It seems impossible for my fish just to go missing! What should I do?
