I just found a dead wrasse after a week, and water parameter seems fine. But that was in a larger tank.
Do a partial water change and take another look..prob a rock fell on him while sleeping

If he wasn't showing signs of distress before this, and you have other fish that are fine, I would look in the back again, and perhaps on the floor around the tank too.

if you cant find it and have a CUC.... may find it was eaten... if you don't and still cant find it you could invest in a couple of hermit crabs... they'll find it
