So I have stable tank. About 2 months, a month steady water parameters.
I have 2 variety platy, 4 fancy guppy, 2 honey gouramis and 12 cardinal tetra.
I obtained 2 long fin bristlenose pleco ( golden /albino and dark one).
All was fine until one day after work I could not find my dark pleco. I count Fish twice a day.
I checked everywhere. Today is 3rd day. Could he died and be eaten over 1 day period?

Facts :
1. As soon as I notice him missing I check water parameters and no changes.
2. I moved large chunk of bogwood to new aquarium about day after I noticed pleco missing.
3. To my surprise i found amano in new tank that I didn't see for more than a month ( I seen only 2 amano before assume 3rd died). He must been stuck in bogwood all this time.
4. My tank is heavily planted but Not enough to completely block the view, 122cm long x 30cm deep and 40cm high ( from gravel level not tank bottom)
I see my golden pleco most of the time so would dark not follow same pattern?
5. They both came from same breeder and were eaten well.
Whoa. Where did I put all my stuff?

Unless that tank has a secret wardrobe, a mysterious train subway station, or a magical painting, my guess your fish hitched a ride on the bogwood you transferred.

I suspect the same but new tank is almost transparent. White gravel turquoise background few plants.. My plan was originally was to move him there anyway. So you don't think he was eaten? I mean surly the amonia would spike a bit ?
