Missing fish

Is it possible that a p. shrimp can eat a baby chromi? I seemed to have lost it and I spent hours trying to find it, I took my filters apart, checked hoses, checked nooks in the LR. No sign of it anywhere. I also have a sailfin tang but the other p. shrimp gets along very well w/ it so I dont think he was the one to eat him. I feel bad for the little guy and his brother ,now he lost his compadre. I can say Im a bit perplexed at his mysterious disapearance. I hope his ghost doest come back and haunt my other fish. Can anyone pray for me that I may one day discover what happened so I can put this to rest.

I highly doubt it would have eaten a healthy fish. I don't have much luck with chromis for some reason. They either jump or go MIA in my tank.

Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!

A small fish can just rot away in a day or two.

Hm...could be in someones stomach....I remember a fish going missing in my freshwater 70 gallon, and then seeing another fish with a pregnant belly....:p

Oh, Shrimps can eat small fishes. I had a lobster hunt down common gold fish for food. The Goldfish was slightly smaller than the blue freshwater lobster. And a shrimp hunt down a juvenile guppy...while its resting.
