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 checked both filters and cant find any signs of him. He was there the night before and gone by morning............

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?

I have looked everywhere, maybe when I get home from work, I will look again.

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.

i dont know anything else to suggest if you removed everything.
