they are amazing hiders when they want to be so just make sure that he is not hiding under a log or behind a rock or something. I remember when i though i lost a male. I gutted the tank looking for him. Turns out he was on a log that i pulled out and had hung on even after i took it out. I was getting all depressed when I spotted him drop from the log to the floor half dead. Grabbed him up and popped him back in. He just hit the deck, looked at me like he was saying 'what the hell was that all about man?' and swam off to find a new place to hide.
So, moral of the story, check everywhere as they even get the best of me sometimes! Even trapped under rocks as they can make caves to breed in and get trapped when the gravel shifts.
Hope you find him!
