As small as it is i think you would be shocked where it can hideBad news.
Came home from school today and could not locate the Lionfish. Ripped apart the whole tank in doing so. Checked around the powerheads, heater, etc. Flipped every rock and checked in my macro algae patches. Nothing. I’m guessing the eel had got to it. So weird, he has never gone after a fish, ever. Doesn't even bother the shrimp. I don’t like to think that he ate the lion— but theres no where else it could be. I don't have a overflow or a refugium, so she couldn't have found her way there. Checked around the tank, no sign of her jumping. Sucks.
