The Amazing Reappearing Loach

On another post, I had mentioned that I had four horseface loaches that all died within a couple weeks of each other. Well, in typical loach fashion, they had to make a lier out of me. It's been at least six months since the others died and out of nowhere one just happens to be sitting on top of the gravel saying "Hey look at me." I'm just glad I found this one alive. I had a similar experience with a missing borneo sucker loach, but I found his body dried up in the gravel of a tank I took down. I figure he was either living in the gravel and only came out at night or somehow got under the undergravel filter and was living down there. I'm starting to think that loaches exhibit this kind of behavior just to mess with our heads.
