Hmmmm, one of my dojos seems to be missing. I was actually planning on switching the decor around, so maybe it'll turn up.

I overturned every piece of decor, combed through some of the sand and am now doing a water change.....still no sign.

if it died, would the others have completely eaten it? No way it could've gotten into the filter?

Dojos are well known for their hiding, and can easily wedge themselves into the tightest of spaces...look on the floor around the tank in case he bailed.

Don't be surprised if he suddenly turns up one day. An check the filter, just in case.

I lost my big abn last week. I checked everywhere, couldn't find him. Saturday morning, he was out and about like he never went missing.

I hope your dojo turns up soon. There's a good chance he's just playing peek-a-boo.

I'm pretty sure it got sucked out in the python and down the drain.

Between the dojo and the killi, you aren't exactly a resounding endorsement for the python. :-\

How big was the dojo?

Like 4-5 inches.

I wasn't paying attention while draining the tank. Don't forget about the bichir, who's made a full recovery.

Yeah, the bichir got stuck at the connector a while back....it's made a full recovery.


NOW, there is only one dojo swimming around. I am CERTAIN #2 didn't get sucked out in the python, so now I'm questioning whether #1 was sucked out.

They can't get in the filter, they aren't behind tank. There's one place they could be that I haven't looked, but the chances of them jumping out of the tank and falling into the uh, vase , that's next to the tank is slI'm to none, since the opening is only an inch wide. Also, the chances of BOTH ending up there are astronomical.

I'm going to dump it out though. It's time to change the water anyways.

Wow, that water was DIRTY No dojos.

So I found dojo #2... it was under the big easter island head, so I guess it burrowed its way under the head and died. I had to use the python to get it out...

still no sign of dojo #3, so I'm back to thinking it was sucked out during a water change.

Oh, no! That's terrible! RIP dojos.

Can you rubber-band a mesh over the opening of the pythons so no fish will get sucked in? Pythons are deadly. That dojo and gold wonder killi...
