Skunk Cleaner Missing :(

Well I went to the lake over the weekend and came back and noticed my skunk cleaner is missing. Did a water test and all parameters are fine. Ammonia 0, PH 8.2, no3=0, no<5.

I was hoping he was hiding in a rock and molting but even when i fed he did not come out.

Im kind of bummed, he was my favorite critter in the tank. I feed everyother day and he was less than a year old. I cant imagine why he would have died.

Temp or SG change? Do not give up hope yet, it could just be hiding.

Like Lando said dont give up hope. If he just got done molting , he is not coming out for any reason.

I had 2 in my 75g. One is still with me just about 2 years and the other disappeared, assumed dead, about 4 - 6 months ago. I read somewhere once they only live about 2 years give or take in a tank. Just a thought.

Peace.

I thought mine was dead for about two weeks until finally one day he was just chillin underneath his normal rock. He molted and then just dissappeared. Hes only done that once to me though and it was when I first got him. Just keep your eye out and hopefully he'll come back out. HTH

Im assuming he MIA. Havent seen him since I got back and there really isnt to many places for him to hide that I cannot see. Sucks cause he was my favorite creature in the tank.
