Disappearance

One of my jawfish disappeared yesterday. I went to feed last night, and it was gone. So I moved some rocks around to find a body, but no body. I checked all of my water parameters and all was where it should be. The other jawfish is fine and their are no signs of an attack on that one. I think tonight I'll put a flashlight on the tank to see if there is anything creeping around when the lights are off.

That was the last thing I checked actually. The jaws stay towards to the front of the tank, but I thought that could be a possibility.

There is a good chance the Chocolate Chip Star finished off the body before you could could findout if it did indeed die. There is also the possibility it's just hiding? From what I understand they are burrowers?
