last week i had a clown go missing i scalled the tank sump and even canister filters and nothing! today it has happened again now both my orange clowns have gone can anyone help!!!

tank is 100g
7 chromis
1 sailfin tank
1 bi-colour blenny
2 black and white clowns
2 orange clowns (these are the ones that have vanashed)
2 cleaner wrasse
1 flame scallop (may i add its funny to watch them swim had me in stiches)
1 reef lobster
2 cleaner shrimp

Missing Clowns

I put my first 2 fish in last week, 2 clowns. One died and in retrieving the body, the second one must have been scared. He wouldn't eat and in the morning he was gone. We have never found him in the live rocks and caves.

90 g
120 LB live rock
well cycled

Yesterday I put in 2 more and they have survived only to have one terrorizing the other.
