Dead fish!

Just got this pygmy angelfish on Friday. It seemed to be doing well: eating, swimming and exploring. Last night I noticed what looked like a small vertical gash on its side. Aside from that it looked fine, and I thought that perhaps my Duncan coral had stung it (if they do that) or perhaps it had gotten scratched on a rock. This morning I didn't check on the fish, but as soon as I got home I did and noticed it was gone. Now I'm wondering what it died from, does anybody have a suggestion? The stark discoloration on it's face was not there last night, and the gash on its side was not that big, which makes me wonder when it actually died. Thanks!!!

It's impossible to tell. I would look to water parameters first.
