Very strange. So do you have tons of plants and could you just be not seeing her? Do you have a cat or someone who would play a trick on you, and take her out? Could she of "jumped" and landed in the filter?

Don't know what else to tell you.

Does she have tankmates that could have attacked and eaten her?

she is in with two painted glass fish and three guppies

i dont have a cat and i checked everywhere outside the tank just in case she jumped out.

i havent had this tank for to long so i dont have that many plants.

If you have a HOB filter i would check behind the lip where the "waterfall" comes out.

This ^^^^

and if that still doesn't work then check the floor again (atleast a 5 ft. radius) with a flashlight. There's something about using a flashlight that helps you spot things on a floor easier like fish. Trust me I would know from experience haha. Checked everywhere then rechecked with a flashlight and spotted him real quick.
