We have turned over everything in the tank - every rock, hidey cave, fake plant - and I've checked all around the chest our tank is sitting on to see if he jumped out. He isn't ANYWHERE! Any suggestions on what might have happened? He was a good 5 inches long so it's not like he could have gotten sucked into the filter or anything.
you know, it's very weird. there are tons of people talking about thiers just going missing, I have had FOUR go missing as well. And i have my tank on white carpet, so I would have seen them if they had jumped. Supposedly, the people that live where they're imported from believe that thier dead ancestors souls take refuge in the BGK's. Very weird.
