I looked for him really hard today. Spot light and all. Moved some large rocks around and not a sign of him. Hes about 1.5in long, so not a small fry by any means.
I keep getting zero ammonia, so I tested nitrates and they are now near zero. The only thing I can think of is he jumped out and I somehow missed that and either flopped somewhere I havent looked or got eaten by the dog. 8-O
He didnt act like he wanted to jump during the short time I had him visible. He was busy swimming in and out of all the nooks and crannies. Maybe he is under the main rocks. (The ones that would need a total break down of the tank to get to).
Do they dig at all? Maybe he burrowed under the rocks?
Uggg...What a mistake.
