They can be difficult to spot, esp with lots of plants. I never can see my five in my 115g except maybe at feeding time when they usually come down with the corys for sinking foods, but sometimes not even then. That's not to say it may not have died overnight...I have had that happen with new otos, for the reasons I mentioned previously.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
