Missing Fishy!

Recommended Posts

My rubber-lipped pleco has been missing for weeks. I realize it's a large aquarium for a 1 inch fish to live in, but he's never been hidden this long before. The only place he could hide would be a hollow log ornament, and I've thoroughly checked it-- he's not in there. I've searched the tank many times over and have seen no sign of him for a very long time. Anyone have any ideas on how to bring him into the open if he's still alive? :unsure:

You could try attaching some tasty food, such as a piece of blanched zucchini to a weight or ornament and place it near the front of the tank to draw him out.

If you don't see him and can't find him, I'm afraid he could be dead. Often times other fish will cannabalize a dead fish and you never see the carcass.

Sorry about your rubberlip if that is the case :(

Two questions-what are the other fish that you keep with him.and what type of filter do you have?Look in your filter box,but be careful pulling things out.

is it possible that he/she might have been able to jump out the tank or get caught behind or inbetween anything in the tank?
