How to find MIA ricordia?

I bought 2 ricordias and they came in today. I wasn't home so my dad dipped and acclimated my new corals and anemone (I trained him good ). However, one of the ricordias wasn't attached to a rock or anything and he thought it was a great idea to just set it on the sand bed. I get home from school and it seems to have rolled away. Is there anyway to find it short of tearing apart my tank? Should I just wait and hope it rolls it's way out? It was a good size ricordia too

You'd have to look around and do some investigating. Keep in mind, these guys can actually move themselves until they are happy anyway.

And putting them in the sandbed is a good move in terms of acclimating new coral to any tank.

Follow the flow. Its likely that its behind your rock work.

It probably landed on a rock and attached, my mushrooms have done this countless times

My rock is set up so there is a lot of narrow holes and caves. The flow would've pushed it inside of my bottom rocks. My only hope is that it crawls out.

I actually got it as a mystery coral. I'm not even sure what color it was. If it was a coral I wanted more, I would tear apart my scape.
