Disappearing Green Mandarin Dragonet

I just put in a Mandarin yesterday. I haven't seen him at all today and I'm worried. My boyfriend and I even changed our aquascape, lifting all the rocks in the process. Still no sign of him. Is he for sure dead? I checked behind the tank, nothing there either. It's like he literally disappeared over night.

If there are any snails/hermits in the tank, they probably made easy work of a small fish corpse. They are called a clean up crew for a reason, that is their job. Hope for the best, but sounds like sorry for your loss.

Has he turned up? I'm currently hoping my LMB turns up soon. Lost him yesterday while rearranging my rocks.
