I can't find my scooter blenny

My other scooter blenny is up and about, but my female scooter blenny is nowhere to be found. Is this normal?
I am aware they bury themselves when they sleep.

How long have you had them? What size tank? What are they eating? Prepared or pods?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

In that small of a tank I find it hard to believe you can't find a fish. lol have you checked the back compartments, (you have a cube right?) maybe she jumped?

Anything in there that could have eaten her up by chance? Usually I can find my scooter with a little bit of work, he leaves his eyes out of the sand.

I know youre stressing now, but just for future reference i would think about upgrading your tank. 2 fish is ALOT of fish for an 8g tank. I have my scooter in a 29g tank which seems to be perfect for him.

I hope your fish comes out. Good luck!
