Yesterday I moved my fish from the old, small tank to their new larger home.
All went well till I realised that I could not find my little loach. I don't know what kind he is - about 2 inches long, thinner than a pencil and dark brown. Sort of like a little snake with whiskers.
He was gone like a scone.
I looked inside the filter, took all the plants and other decorations out. I find it hard to believe that he would be under the gravel as in that old tank, the gravel is large and sharp
I finally gave up -- and this morning, there he was, back again! He looks a little stressed, swimming around a lot. I can only move him to the new tank this evening when I get home so I hope he settles down a bit.
I think he might have hidden at the top of the filter, where the motor is
Its a Fluval sponge filter.
If I can, I'll get him some companions.
Anyhoo, just wanted to share my amazement
