Check your powerheads. Does your tank have an overflow? Check in there as well. Also, check inside your skimmer and HOB filters.

if your tank didn't cloud I would guess that it's still in there somewhere ......

What was the condy size? How long was he missing? What type of cleanup crew do you have? My guess would be that you would have an ammonia spike even if the cleanup crew was on top of the clean up.

well it was about 3" diameter...i have had it for 6 months...i fed it once a week...it would religously after it ate meaty foods it would move to the back of the rocks for about 3 days then would come back out...i fed it on the 30th...then as always it went to the back...2 days later on the first i still saw it back there....how i noticed it was missing is because his friend (crab) was hosting a different anenome...so i started to look for it....nothing...so its been 5 days now gone. i dont have a real clean up crew just some snails and a couple hermits...but maybe some worms ate it or something...i guess i could check my amonia levels tonight and see what they say.

I wouldn't be so sure about the amonia spike.


My Condy died durring the power outs of Florida's recent hurricane season, I didn't have a spike when he died. He didn't cloud the water, either.
