Confession: I, too, have been lunacized by loaches

Aye yaye yaye!!

I walked over to the tank a half hour ago after getting home from work to check on the clowns, and about had a heart attack. I looked and looked, but could only count three of them - there should be four!!

I immediately started nosing around the tank's backside and the sides and inside and everywhere; nobody had jumped out. I examined the filter box, but the bio-wheels clearly block the entrance to it; nobody could get in there.

I opened the hood and started ripping out plastic plants. I lifted them all to the top to examine and hold there; looked throughout my amazon sword plant. Still only three accounted for. Panic.

Then I saw Sebastian, barely. Laying in my skull ornament, completely on the bottom. Completely not moving. My heart sunk. None of my clowns, ever, has been this incredibly unaware of its surroundings or "lonerish" in my tank. With a deep breath, I lifted the ornament.

And out he swam, joining his friends.

Yeah, they're back there. Right now. No question. Behind the plants...

Laughing at me!
