Default missing Lawnmower Blennie

I have had a Lawnmower blenny for over 6 months and days ago it disappeared
from view. I have a fish (2 clowns, a coral beauty, and a tang), and live
rock set up with some snails, hermit crabs, and 2 emerald crabs. Could they
have eaten Him?

yup, not only that, but they get trapped in the rocks after, or when they
die, then disentigrate if the crabs dont get them, or they jump out oer the
back of the tank, or as she mentioned, the wier or well. hope ya found him
alive.... blennys are so cool. saw a pair of barnacle blennys the other
day, think we need more of those going around, i want a few pair.

And I think you'll lose a whole lot more before you exit this insane
hobby. If you have a sump filter, check the well as it may have been
washed over the weir. If you have water at the bottom of yours, then you
might be lucky and it might be still alive. Other than that, it probably
died from one cause or another and the hermits would have stripped clean
within a few hours (probably overnight).

I had one go missing also, and I have never seen a trace of him again. my
brother believed the cat might have found his body on the floor and ate it,
but I have doubts. Mike.
