Unhappy can't find macho man

Ok so I usually do a head count during feeding and this morning macho man (my 1 male guppy) was missing. When I got home from work I removed all of the plastic plants, rocks and did a partial water change looking for him. I cant seem to find him anywhere in the tank??

What could have happened to him?

Check you filter. I had the water up where the outflow came out of my filter and my Tiger/Endler Hybrid jumped up or swam up the filter outflow into the filter into the filter box. He was still alive and well when I found him. It was good I checked the filter after checking around my tank to make sure he did not jump out of my tank.

I dope you find him. I don't have any other suggestions on were to look. Are there any holes in your decorations that he could have swim into and got stuck?

Kindest Regards,
Amanda

Let us know what happens. I had a cory dissapear on me once and reappear days later. I moved all the decorations. One of my fish dug a little alcove behind my live plants inbetween rocks and he was living in there apparantly.
