Goby missing

I bought a yellow goby this past weekend and have not seen him since. Is this common? I have a 55 gallon FOWLR.

Contents:
Coral beauty
Yellow tank
Fox face rabbit
2 clowns
1 damsel
2 pajama Cardinal
Blenny
3 emerald crabs.

Nitrates are 0
Phosphates are 0
Salinity is 1.024
These are from the last test at the fish store.

The yellow watchman goby seemed happy when put in my tank. Is it possible that he's just hiding somewhere?

they like to burrow and will hide when they are new. Check ammonia if you can at least that should give you a bit of warning if it died.

I have had one hide for 3+ weeks and he was fine. I think my clown and/or wrasse scared him but he eventually came back out regularly.

I saw him tonight! He has dug under some live rock on the back of the tank. He's not venturing far right now. But atleast he was cool to see finally.

Thanks for the help guys!
