Dead and missing Bangaii Cardinalfish

I woke up one morning and I realized that my bangaii cardinal was nowhere to be seen. I still canít find him and its been a few days. I have looked everywhere. I think he is definitely dead.

Tank is a 14 gal biocube.
Only other fish is a clown.

I think that he just starved himself and died. I didnít see him eat for a while. He was getting smaller IMO.
Is it possible that he died and my blue hermit crap ate him along with some bristle worms and my clown?
I also did have a six line wrasse die but that was about a month ago. My clown has been in there for 10 months.
Any ideas why this happened?

Very possible that he died and the CUC ate them. I had a flame and emperor angels disappeared on me too

I've read that bangaii that are wild caught are difficult to get to eat. Tank bred are supposed to be easier to get eating. How long did you have him?

If you get another, make sure it's tank bred. Mine are tank bred, and both were eating from the first day I got them.

look on liveaquaria.com and look at nano fish... that will give you a good idea of fish that are right for that size tank. If you get a fish that needs a bigger tank it will stress it out and you will have more dead fish
