trapped in an ornament

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.
