As you may or maynot know I have what I was told are Sand loach-a type of nemochelius (dont quote my spelling)Anyway since I purchased them around two months ago both were very active at all times-and they were both always visable-then two weeks ago one vanished-then the other vanished-literaly for days-I was convinced they were dead-lifting a piece of bogwood I found one living QUITE HAPPILY THANKYOU VERY MUCH FOR THE INTRUSSION-NOW PUT THE BOGWOOD BACK.Anyway I looked no further and to this day havenot come across the other.Well today the one I found around two weeks ago has suddenly comeout of hiding and is quite happy swimming about-as it did originaly-I find all this totaly odd-I wonder if this fish can be effected by outside conditions-such as preasure?Does anyone have an idea? Thanks in advance
