Burrow in sand? I just picked up a rainbow shark, first he was in a little cove and now he's nowhere to be seen.. 55g tank and I picked up every single decoration possible and still can't find him.

How long has the tank been running? Also are there any places it could get wedged? I had two die from getting stuck in the exact same spot. Each time I couldn’t find them had to look closely.

Good stuff. I love my rainbow shark. I’d say it’s the centerpiece fish in my tank, about 5 inches might go a bit more. I know I’ve seen them bigger than 5 inches.
