We think he might be in one of our rocks... Our other firefish (which is 3 inches long) entered this rock yesterday and had enough room inside of it to turn a round completely (he swam in head first, then swam out head first). So he might be hiding within this rock. But what do we do? I mean if he is in there, we cant pull him out. And what if (fish-heaven forbid) he's dead? Still no sign of him since last thursday...

Can you see any of the tail or head that might be peeking out of the rock? If there is you may have to break the rock to get it out. It took me and my friend nearly 2 hours to rescue his tomato clown.

Check the water. Did the tank start cycling?

No, there is no tail or head sticking out anywhere. We took that rock out yesterday to see if he was in there and he was not. This fish has learned how to become invisible. I swear. I know yall think we are crazy. But the fish is gone!

Is it possibly he buried himself in the sand? I can literally watch my firefish do that - makes such a mess.

If you have live rock in the sense that it is full of worms and things like that it is possible it died and the worms took care of the clean up. Whenever I see a bunch of the CUC I know that something in the tank has died. It is usually less than an hour before something the size of a fire fish can be gone.

We don't have sand, we have gravel. Is it still possible to bury themselves in the gravel?
And yes we have live rock, but I don't know if there are worms in it or not? There would be some sign of them in our rocks wouldnt there?

I only see my bristle worms when I feed the tank heavily and they come out to clean up the leftovers. Do you have any crabs or snails?
