Banded goby

Ok so it was fish shop Friday and I came home with a banded high fin goby, he was a very young one, ie about one inch long.
I acclimated him for an hour then dropped him in.
Happy with my new mate I went to the pub and hoped he found the juvenile pistol shrimp (hitchhiker).
Today I woke up and I swear the bugger is not in the tank,
I've fed tank and done a part WC.
I know you can't help me, but where the hell has he gone?!
2 clowns
2 shrimp
1 yellow goby
Crabs
Coral

He`s either on the floor or hiding in the tank. They are jumpers so check out the floor all around the tank and if he`s in the rocks then just wait hor him to show up.

Update...

I just resisted the urge to buy another one,
I got home and got my torch out, with a bit of neck craning and a contorted body I spotted him tucked away... I'm sure he was laughing too.
