Freshwater Flounder

My freshwater flounder has disappeared! I've tore my tank apart and went through the substrate. All it is housed with is a bumblebee goby and a dragon goby. I haven't seen it in two weeks. I know they're great at camouflage, but is this unusual?

I used to have 4 - 1 died and one disappeared. I've only seen 2 for the last few months. Do you have snails?

Have you seen them eat?

I had one disappear - I have snails so if it died its long gone.

no snails yet. I'm acclimating some tiger nerites in another tank though. the only other fishes in the tank at the time of disappearance were a dragon goby and bumblebee goby.

Almost a month without seeing the flounder and I've given up hope. I really want some in my tank and will be trying again soon. I buy them when they are about 1 inch and in freshwater at my LFS and acclimate them over a few weeks to a SG of about 1.008. I haven't had any problems with acclimation because when they're fully acclimated they have no problems in my main tank at all. Any tips or advice in raising these finicky unique fish? I never saw my flounder eat at all and don't how it would've survived the months I had it if it hadn't of been eating...

Mine are in straight fresh water. I've had them for several months now and have never seen them eat. These are my first flounders, so I don't have much to offer...
