Clown fish disappeared

I recently added my first fish a perculla clown to main tank, after 3 weeks in Qt. It was doing fine eating well swimming around enjoying the bigger tank. After 3 days it just disappeared. I have a glass top on my tank with just a few openings but I looked behind the tank and every where but no fish! The only other things in the tank are some snails and a couple of black cucumbers. Do clowns jump out? any ideas?

I have had issues with clowns jumping. If you have an overflow also check in there and check in your sump if you have one.

I hope he has strainers on them. If not it won't be pretty.

The best thing to do to ur tank is take a foam rectangle (enough to fill in the ph intake) and cut slits into them so u can put over the ph or u will have sushi in ur tank lol
