    took the skimmer apart, wasnt in there, checked pumps and everything and the skimmer is going like crazy and earlier i did see white chuncks floatingg around. He doesnt hide, always out to eat, he knows when its dinner time, not on the floor.

    I'm seriously going to break out in tears right now :(

    check under rocks, under tank, behind the couch/bed/floor etc.. i would check anywhere around the tank, say 15' foot radius. incase he flopped far away.. hopefully he's just hiding in some rock work..

    Have a good dinner, but mind you, fish don't always adhere to schedules. They're animals. My fingers are crossed for you PC
