Could have been almost any reason. If you don't see him in a few days then he probably didn't make it.

I agree. Any fish that swims actively, like a Tang, should be seen unless it is very sick or deceased.

Might want to block off the overflow. They create a decent amount of suction and can trap a fish against itself

Haha yeah that's a common place for me since my snowflake likes to get in there over now and then.
