On Monday,I placed a Rainford Goby (1.5-2 inch)into my 90g and have not seen him since!! How long should I give it until I should concider it a loss? Other inhabitance are 2 Lyretail, 4 green chromis, 6 line wrasse, dragon goby. Tank has about 125-150 live rock so he has plenty of places to hide where I can't see.

They are a timid fish so I wouldn't worry too much. Given their size and the amount of rockwork you have it's quite possible it has been out and is just hiding when you come by. I had a Yellow Watchman Goby that would disappear for weeks at a time. I had to crack the door to the room the tank was in to catch a glimpse of it before it hid. That went on for a month or two after I added it.

I had a rainford that I lost track of for 2 months and found it while aquascaping. It was using a small hole in a base rock at the back of the tank as it's home.
