I'm sorry Eagleray.
I do remember a thread from a long time ago about a baby bimac that disapeared. They spent weeks looking for it and took the whole tank apart trying to find it. After a few weeks they had long since given up and one day it just popped up. It had been hiding in the liverock the whole time. I don't want to get your hopes up, but I'd give it a little longer and keep some food in the tank just in case. Goodluck with Alice's tank warming party.

Don't give up hope yet, Eagleray. I've heard of octo's hitchhiking in on liverock. If they can survive that and not be noticed, Butter could certainly hide sucessfully in your tank.

Any update?? I do remember someone from this sight who's baby disapeared for over a week and then resurfaced. He also tore his tank apart.

Keeping my fingers crossed!!

Terrible news! Maybe like what Carol said, the octo could be hiding in holes in single pieces of live rock. Crossing my fingers too.

Still Waiting. We are going to give it a couple of weeks and see what happens. Another problem that we ran into is that Butter gave up on hermit crabs. He liked the ghost shrimp, and there is no way to tell if they are gone, becasue 1.) Lucky, the damsel, eats them, and 2.) They die quickly.
We are still checking every couple of hours. Keeping our finger crossed too.
