I am at wits end and I am going back and forth back and forth on what to do. All I do know is I do not want to knock my little pelco's brains out.
First things first I have approx. a two and a half inch pelco and growing fast. He used to be a tiny little bugger. It loves to hide in the dragon I got from petsmart and already has killed one minnow. Circle of life thing because when I came back said fish was gone and never seen from again. 0_o
For nearly a week now I have not seen heads or tails of my pelco. Which is odd since he's usually harassing the other fish. I did a full clean of my tank and even knocked over my dragon. No pelco. I refilled the tank no pelco. Then my dumb butt dropped the hood into the tank and well needless to say caused havoc in my tank (thank god not plugged in).
I picked up my dragon out of the tank nothing fell out. I turned it to the side and herd a thunk. concerned I returned the dragon to the water on it's side then tipped it up right. I carefully repeated in the water to see if anything came out. Nothing did. But like I said above I have no desire to knock my pelco's brains out if he is still alive.
It's been a week and I put a algae pellet under the dragon. Even put in check the goldfish that tried to steal it. Should I just leave it a bit longer or try harder to see if I have a dead pelco in the dragon. I tried to reach up in it but couldn't feel anything... Maybe he got himself stuck?
Oh what to do.
