I cannot help but stop and check on each creature in each of my tanks everytime I pass by. With one in the dining room and one in the living room, this is often.
As I was passing by the 5 gal. in the livingroom, I didn't see Ted, only the two ghost shrimp. It's kind of happened before, but within a few seconds he pops his head out of his cave thingy. This time he didn't. Everything was pulled out of the tank, the filter was dumped in case he may have been in there. No Ted.
My fish is gone. The tank has a lid (it's the 5 gal. Wal-Mart tank). There is an opening in the back where the filter fits snuggly into. I cannot for the life of me figure out how he got out. He's not on the table, behind the table or under the table. I have dogs.
