did you say you have a gost shrimp or some thing that eats the food off the bottem of the tank? Because if you do then they might have eaten her shotly after she died without you noticing. Did you see her asleap shotly before she disaperd? If so she could have ben dead and you thought she was asleap.
( sorry about your fish)

If only she did go thrugh a portale an one day she will magicly apper.

Well the tank is a 20 long, I can barley lift it myself when its empty...I'd rather not completely tear it down. I've already taken everything out and looked through it all with a flashlight....I think thats probably just as thorough.
I don't have a lid or top at actually, the tank previously held hermit crabs and a hood costs around $40-$50 around here, so right now I've got to live without one. I know she could have jumped out, but both my dad and I got on our hands and knees with flashlights and looked behind the gradenza and found nothing so I'm pretty sure she didn't jump.

I have a clown pleco and a snail, its very likely that if she died she would have been eaten, but I can't figure out a reason for her death. She was perfectly active that day, swimming with the other girls and playing with Mira, no sighs of lethargy, stress, or sickness. Just there one minute and gone the next.

That would be cool though, if she and Jinx suddenly appeared a couple months from now

Maybe she went shopping? LOL. Sorry I know this is a serious deal. I hope you find her.

I swear I didn't take her (thinks "OMG they found out!!!" LOL).

xDD lol guys! Thanks for your support, and the jokes do make me feel a little better

MrV has created a portal machine and has been coming through to take our bettas! Locks can no longer keep him out! xD

-sigh- It is frustrating not knowing what happened though and even more frustrating that this totally brought my breeding plans to a halt....ugh, I wish my LFS stocked a variety of females more often...

Oh well, on the bright side I got to rescue Jirou, my new CT I'm so excited about being able to care for and nurse him back to heath....I blame it on feminine instinct
And he'd be a pretty match with Phoenix So even though its sets me back a few months until he heals, at least not all is lost!
