4" richmond wrasse MIA??

Yesterday i bought a richmond wrasse - gorgeous fish! He assimilated nicely and even ate after a few hours . He's easily the longest fish in my tank at 4" , none of my other fish bothered him at all. He still looked good today , ate again and was swimming all over looking really good . This morning i reached in there to grab an evil hermit to take back to the lfs thats been eating my snails and haven't seen a sign of him since. I've gone behind the tank looked everywhere can't c him in there. He's big i don't c how he could b hiding where i wouldn't b able to c at least part of him. Is it possible he could have jumped? I've looked on the floor too... Totally perplexed and slightly worried , he wasn't cheap.

Anybody have any experience with this fish?

Some wrasses are known to bury themselves in the sand...he might be in the sand bed

I have a goby. I know nothing like a wrasse but he's about 4-5 inches long and he hides in the LR and substrate, you would never know he's in there!

this particular type of wrasse and wrasse family are known burriers and not really known for jumping. prior to its death my hoeven (same family) was moved and bucketed numerous times.. never once jumps... but was always found in the sand bed
