Fire fish missing

I haven't seen my fire fish all day, should I be worried? I have a small tank with no fish that would even consider eating it. My don saw it this morning and said it was dead but my wife insisted it wasn't. I left to work and came back and have yet to see it.

Did you check around the tank? They are jumpers. Good luck!

They like to disappear for days at a time, don't give up hope yet.

I've had him for 2 weeks and this is the first time this happens. Art night hes in the rock work but is usually out the whole day. Today I haven't seen him at all.

I lost a couple in my reef this summer. They are pretty small and like to jump. I never found mine.

My firefish hides in my live rock a ton. Every once in awhile I can see his tail sticking out. Have you tried feeding, mine nor all comes back out at feeding time.
