Dead Chromis. Worth breaking down tank to get out?

I seem to be missing one of my Chromis. It's a small fish, no more than an inch. Tank is a 29, and I have a decent cleanup crew. (hermits/brittle star) Should I be concerned about this fish if it's dead, or will the crew clean it up?

Chances are, it's already been taken care of.

Just check your ammonia.... You are probably ok with doing nothing.

Agreed with mjvincent and fluff. Cleanup crew was on my deadfish in less than 5 min! Just check ammonia becuase if it died in a place where it cannot be gotton to then it will spike.

My chromi still missing since 4 days ago, but when I tested for ammonia this morning it was 0 so I guess that's a good sign. I did moved my rocks around a bit but did not find it. I wouldn't worry about it unless your ammonia starts to spike up.
