Other than that... I never saw him, no one would know he was in the tank.
The two striped catfish I can find are in an ornament.
There is another ornament, a waterfall, in the tank. It has a hole in the bottom, but the hole is sitting on the substrate, I can't see how he could get in there. But I still took it out of the tank and looked inside, couldn't see him in there. I also listened for the croaking sound, I heard nothing.
I had a baby video monitor and camera with night vision in Charlie's room when he was young, because he was a climber and his bed is a volkswagon bug, so we were worried about him falling of the roof, or opening the window and falling out. It has night vision (my regular camera and video camera do not).
Jodie is looking for the charger for the handheld monitor right now. (we haven't used it in ages). She found it, it is working. NICE. It doesn't record, but I'll just watch it live.
Tonight when I turn all the lights off I'll drop in a couple of algae wafers. The camera can rotate, move up and down and zoom in from the monitor. If he's in there, and alive, and comes out to eat, I should see him tonight.
