I do have a dog, but he's kind of a sissy. He would be more afraid of it than anything but it is possible. My wife read somewhere that they can hide for quite a while without eating (i don't know where she read that though). Either way, I still haven't seen it. I check everywhere, every night. No signs at all.
I'm pretty sure it's a lost cause at this point, but I'm going to wait it out hoping it comes out of a rock in the near future.

I just got done removing over 220lbs of live rock from my tank and still have not found mine.Unless it is hiding in a crevis somewhere I am considering him gone for good.

I did the same but I don't have anywhere near that much rock. I think mine might be inside one of the rocks (i have several very porous rocks). There is no way I'm smashing up my rocks until its found, all I would be left with is an expensive pile of rubble.

Very true, $20 eel vs $400 in rock.... Too bad tho, cool little bugger before the disappearance.
