    It's very possible. Was he lethargic, and/or eating a lot before going under?

    Your best bet is to assume he's molting and leave him alone. Keep tank conditions as optimum as possible, provide fresh food and water, and try not to disturb Inferno =]

    wow! that's a long time! it's very possible he went under. Keep an eye on the sand/subsrtate above him, and see if in the time frame of a few days he disturbs it at all =]. Usually they come up for a quick stop of food and water in the night every once in a while.

    My two did the same. They were very active just an hour before burying. I haven't seen mine in 2 and 3 days. My Ariel went down first then Sebastion a day later. Like you, I've seen no food action since they went down.
