my tang is missing

Ive had a yellow tang for about nine months now and hes done great, today i cant find him anywhere, i know hes got to be dead somewhere but cant see it anywhere. checked the overflow checked the sump, checked the floor, behind rock everywhere. should i be concerned with finding him so he dosent fowl the water, i really dont want to go taking everything apart, will he be eaten? i have blue leg crabs, scarlet crabs, two cleaners, cucumber, and pepermint shrimp, (although i havent seen the pepermints in a while). I did add three green chromis' a few days ago im trying to tell myself this didnt lead to the disapearance of my tang, any help would be great. Thanks

They may have had something to do with it's disappearance. If it's been in there for 9 months and new fish were added...it could have stressed the fish enough to have succumb to an illness. In three daays time the illness could have killed the fish. You will never know for sure, there really isn't enough evidence to blame the chromis. I'm sorry for your loss.
