What do y'all do when you have a missing fish and you can't find it anywhere short of pulling out everything in the tank? I haven't seen a small demasoni in weeks or a clown loach in 3 days. Could they have been entirely eaten? They were too big to be swallowed in one gulp.

If it's a big tank and my water parameters are OK I might just wait and see. If it's a small tank I'd pull everything out.

check the floor around and under the tank. And around the house if you have dogs or cats. Ionce found the corpse of a Jack dempsey under my bed. The dempsey tank was across the hall. My guess is it jumped and the dog started playing with it.

The clown loach actually appeared this morning. I put him in a fry catch to recover...he doesn't look beat up, but doesn't look good either. I think the Demasoni was too small and got eaten.

I used to have a huge clown loach but never saw him, behind driftwood is a piece of down pipe, he sits in that all the time, with a minature (! - 5 inches long!) plec. Just put a new small one into my community, 2 days ago, still not seen!
