Yellow Tang

My yellow is missing this am. No trace of him in my 220 tank ??? He wasn't sick.. So sad.. What could have happened? He was in there with the rest for about 4 years

How long since you've seen him? Is there a lot of rock in the tank? Never fun when a fish goes missing especially since you don't want a dead fish in the tank rotting away. Good luck, sorry.

Have you added any new fish lately bigger him then him that may have stressed him out? I want to be honest here I don't see the fish being hidden for that long, could be stuck in rock work maybe.

Well I know you have a big tank but I suggest you find him and remove it asap.
