Well you should test your water and probably do a Partial Water Change to help keep the amonia down if indeed it goes up.

Do you have nassarius snails or crabs in there? If so they may have already eaten the firefish. Just test your water parameters, it will be fine.

Well, its either a) not dead and hiding, B) something ate it already or C) its in the filter. Check around and yes you can move rock around to find it. Keep a close eye on your water parameters and test often.

To get the ammonia down do a 5 gallon water change if its up, if its below 1.0ppm then you should be able to get away with a 2-3 gallon change.

Yep sure is, Survived and well.. and has tank mates now Thank goodness!

As for the Ammonia, make SURE you always have plenty of stored saltwater for changes and emergency changes. The easiest way to get ammonia down is to do a pretty big water change as stated before. Test your water parameters daily at this point.

anything is possible in a marine aquarium!! ... but i agree to have SW stored make sure you dont use tap, Distilled if you cant get your hands on RO water from LFS... RO/DI is the best. I work at a LFS here in Ohio and i stay stocked with at least 30 gallons of RO SW. always for those diar times.
