Exclamation Where is my Ancistrus?!

Hello,

I have two ancistrus (dotted and albino) and I haven't seen my albino ancistrus for days now, even though I spend at least 2 hours a day starring at the aquarium.

Where could he be? This is my setup:



Could he be somewhere inside the cracks of the piece of wood I have?

P.S. Once, when I was re-decorating my tank I lifted the wood and he was beneath it even though the wood is held by gravel.

Welll, that sucks. Is your dotted ancistrus a lot bigger than your albino? he could've swallowed him, that happened with my guppies and goldfish. Let's see, he also could've went in the wood and didn't bother to come out, or something. My betta, May Rose, sleeps in a little castle decoration that's hollow and tipped over. Or your dotted one turned into a cannibal (highly unlikely)

Thanks for replying!

They are the same size. I actually saw him yesterday but only for a few minutes. His head was poking out and he was moving a bit, so I guess he just likes to get in deep...

Most likely in the wood. That's where mine like to go. Yes, they can wedge in there pretty good. Lol
