so I lost a fish....

I literally lost a fish! lol

So after spending alot of time (and money) in the LFS today, he gave me a few damsels to pop in the tank to try. I've been sitting here admiring them, they are just swimming around having the time of their life, but one of them seems to be missing already. I've looked everywhere, even poking around the rocks to try to make him come out of hiding....nothing.

he didnt jump out on me did he?

no, they are all the same size, but with how my rocks are setup he can be deep in hiding. I only have a few damsels that's all

Just out of curiosity, is this tank cycled? You could've had a spike that killed him....... Just a guess.

naw, the ammonia is fine.....but I found him! I know I wasnt crazy lol
he was deep in the rocks but isnt looking good. the others are very active and tearing up their food right now

this particular damsel is like a powder-green color, and the surviving one likes to hide too, he's fine as he's eating well but he's showed me where a dead spot is so I gotta move some PH around
