I really hope that I am not misleading you here and giving you a false sense of security
as Sherlock Holmes once said
"The elimination of possibilities will yield the solution".
He was not on the floor, not in the filtration media, not in the tubing, etc. so he has "just got to be in the tank".
When the cleaning which I referenced previously was occurring while I was removing the rocks and wood from the tank, inspecting them for fish and placing them on the kitchen counter the "gal" which I run around with from New Mexico was brushing them with a toothbrush on the kitchen counter to remove small areas of algae and discoloration.
During the course of this cleaning process one of my GN's appeared on the counter. "Go figure" where he came from.
