Missing Clownfish

This morning I turned on the lights and one of my two clownfish was missing I searched the tank moving rocks and looking behind the PH and nothing. Could my Carpet Anemone have eaten him. I have no other fish in the tank and a whole fish dont just disappear.

Is it possible?

Look around the tank and behind it, they can be jumpers. I lost a perc a few months back this way.

Do you have a overflow box, I had a chromis in the back part of the overflow (whatever that is called) and had my son not noticed it I don't know how long the poor lil guy would have been stuck there (I have 6 of em so it would be easy not to notice....now I count them everytime I see them ). Still have him

Do you have any powerheads? Check the intakes as it could have been sucked up.

Do you have hermits in the tank or anything of that sort because I lost a clown a few months back and never saw him again. I presume my hermits took care of the body. Because I had no rise in any of my tests.
