I have had this happen to me before too! A couple of times actually. Once, the lil sucker disappeared for several days before magically reappearing like nothing had happened. I too, had looked under the decorations and through the plants, to no avail. Yet there he showed up!
The other one unfortunately was not as lucky. This was a couple of years after the first one. I finally found his picked clean bones the next day.
When I have fish missing, I tend to look outside the tank even with a top on. I lost a beautiful violet goby once because I did not know at the time they were jumpers and I had a small area in the lid that was open. He found it! I found him lying an inch away from the dog's water bowl. I had another incident with a rather large mystery snail. It got out and my dog decided it was a threat and took it out to the cold yard. I found it several hours later, plopped it back in some warm water and was surprised when it came back about 4 hours later. I now make sure there are no obvious openings to the lids...lol
I hope your lil guy magically shows up like my first one did!
