this is just the weirdest thing ever! i let everything settle down and used my super-powerful headlamp to look down into the chambers. i did not see him anywhere, in any of the 3 chambers. i took the pump out, took the tubing off, checked everywhere. no fish. took the sponge out, cleaned it, left it out. let everything sit for another hour to settle again. shined light. no fish. he just isn't there. ANYWHERE!
my only hope is that he jumped back into the tank when i blinked my eyes and he's just hiding, probably terrified, poor thing.
i pulled all of the cords from behind the stand to make sure he didn't jump completely out of the tank. didn't find him. looked all over the floor, nothing.
while i was searching the bottom of the pump chamber, i did find a dead gobie. clowns are not jumpers, i'm not sure gobies are. how and why on earth are my fish ending up in the pump chamber??? gah!!!
