So i got my new betta for my 10gal on wednesday and he has happily been swimming around enjoying himself. This morning I was watching him swim and He was just having a blast, and I went out to get him some tank mates. (5 rasbora's and 2 zebra snails) and when i came down stairs to check on him.. He was no where to be found? My tank is only 10gal, with lots of plants, a skull thing (which i lifted and he wasn't there) and a piece of drift wood that you can't really get into.. The tank has a hood so its not like he could have gotten out, and I checked the filter just incase. Not there either. Now he has 5 fishies swimming around and 2 snails and hes still not there. Starting to get worried now but I dont know how he could have just vanished?
Take everything out, if you can, he might be hiding in a forgotten corner. Bettas can squeeze through the smallest openings. I saw it with my own eyes today when Pallas jumped and it was too late to save him. I really hope you find your guy!
