Anyone ever have a fish disappear for weeks and then reappear like nothing ever happened?

Recommended Posts

My firefish disappeared weeks ago, I'm not even sure how long, maybe over a month and then just this evening came out from a Rock while I was feeding. It's only a 40gal tank too so there's not that many places to hide. I'm happy to have him back but pretty surprised lol.🤔

Lol I haven’t had one reappear on its own, always found in the overflow after few days. Glad the hellfrichi came back nice looking fish. Dustin

I know that such a scenario is pretty common with wrasses. Those fish will sometimes bury themselves in the sand for a couple weeks when they are brand new to a tank.

Yep - had one disappear for well over a month only to pop up again one day after I had given up hope.

I bought a tank raised mandarin and put it in my tank months ago. I've seen it about once a month and it's growing. I had pretty much given up on it after the first month.

I've had fish hide for various periods, but the details are fuzzy since it hasn't happened in a long time.  However, my pompom crab continues to do it regularly; they hide a lot, in general, but mine has no nems and is extra secretive due to being without a defense (although he had picked up a maxi mini nem baby last time I saw him). His most recent hiding period lasted about a year, and I was sure he was a goner, then poof, he appeared as if by magic!

Had a firefish go missing for about a month...then i found it trapped in the back compartment of the tank...unfortunately it had gone blind while stuck in the back chamber. It was three black walls with no light...sad
