Not sure what that means. On the flashlight, I like to use one that has a red lense so as not to startle the "nighties".

A blacklight might be more confusing in trying to spot an unwanted critter.

You can also try the tilted glass trick at night. Just put a glass in your aquarium next to your LR and tilt it with some food in the bottom and the crab will walk down it but cant walk back up. If you have a crab this will catch him.

If you have moon lights of any sort, placing a piece of food near the LR inside something similar too a a testtube to keep fish from eating it may draw the thing out so you can at least see it.

If the fish did simply die of stress, anything in your tank may have decided it was a good snack which could be where the chunk out of its head came from.
