    I just checked my 2.5 gallon tank when I got home from school, and there was a female betta in the tank when I left the house. There is no body in or around the tank... just nothing...



    When you guys experience missing fish, where do you think they go?

    I'd look on the floor around the tank.

    I've checked all around the floor, my door is shut and my dog doesn't go into my room... there is absolutely no logical explanation for this. I'm absolutely befuddled

    in the filter?
    Hiding under something?

    Is it betta migration season?? spring is here...lol

    I lost a fish for 2 weeks once...it was hiding!! I guess it snuck out and ate when I wasn't around or at night.

    not a lot of places to hide in a 2.5 gallon tank....

    I lost a tiger barb for like 3 months. I found it in the closet a few feet away.

    I've lost fish magically only to find their skeletons in the substrate a few weeks later.... :/

    I still can't find her... i'm worried... but mostly confused. Wherever she is, I hope shes all right... if she turns up she's gonna get a scolding... then I'll give in and give her love :)

    My nieces betta jumped and got stuck in the curtain behind the tank.
    I hope you find her.
