Do you ever lose an animal in your tank? I seem to be good at it. Whenever I loose someone, I feel obligated to find them.
I'll usually give it a few days before searching so I don't upset the balance in my tank unnecessarily.
I lost my nerite a while back, but found it. The first times I found it buried in the sand.
I transferred it to a small betta tank with gravel, and it was doing fine until I noticed it missing again three days ago.
I lost an amano shrimp more recently. I originally thought it got into the filter, but it didn't.
Now I'm concerned I buried it in the substrate when I replanted some plants, but I think it's unlikely...
What about you, what do you do if someone is missing? Search immediately, or give it some time?
