trapped in an ornament

In addition to my great find of saddle back loaches, I also had an interesting experience today. Last night, I noticed my female Pseudogastromyzon cheni was missing. I looked in all her favorite hiding places but to no avail. Since she has been a prolific spawner, I was not happy. This morning I thought she might be out at feeding time. She never appeared. Finally, when I got home and was preparing to put the orthos in the hillstream tank, I thought I would do a quick gravel clean and partial water change. I moved a hollow rock ornament and noticed movement inside. It was the cheni. She couldn't seem to get out. I turned the ornament over and out she came with the water. Fortunatel
