    I agree with everyone else wait it out, if he doesnt appear he is probably dead. But i do hope you at least find out what happened.

    Like epsilon said he could be hiding in a rock, we picked up some fish and live rock a few weeks ago and the guys wife kept telling me that there where 2 yellow tail damsels in the tank that morning but i only pulled one out. WEll i put the LR in a cooler filled with SW to keep it live and it sat for a good 4 hours while i redid the Lionfish tank and set up the new wrasse tank. Well i put 3 decent size pieces in the wrasse tank and set him loose and was putting ht rest into the lionfish tank when my girl told me that there was a fish in it. She grabbed him and put him in the reef tank, just glad we notice before i unleashed the lion back into his tank.

    Just wait it out, takes alot of patience in this hobby.

    I agree with waiting. I was taking down a 75g, had everything out and couldn't find a chromis that was hiding. A good thought is that he's closed into a space, so gingerly lightly and gently moving some stuff around a little is not a bad idea. I also agree that in a relatively settled 150g you might not see a spike from one dead chromis. Good lick and keep on truckin'.- Paul

    hmm.. well people i found it.........................dead.... he did jumped.

    i have no idea how the heck he got to the place where i found him but he was under my 29g.. it was at least 4 feet away from my 150...

    im so pissed i didnt see him before.. i looked there and i didnt see him..( probably since i was nervous i just didnt see him)
