MIA Stiphodon Gobies

Soo, I am confused.
I have a heavily planted 20l community tank with:

16 Rasbora Birigittae
4 Trichopsis Pumila
6 Otocinclus
6 Pygmy Corydora
And my two Stiphodons have disapeared (MIA for a month).

Jumped? I would doubt it, since they can barely swim (Also, it has a lid).
Eaten? Were the biggest guys on the block.
No bodies to be found and it is aching my head. Hope some of you with more experience in the hobby may help.

Also, what is the fuzz with the water changes? I have not done any after the first three months and everything is insanely healthy. I am talking zero manteinance (other than trimming): no gravel vacuum, no ferts, no CO2, no current, no filter, no aerator. Only heater and light. 1 year strong.

(May explain the Stiphodons, but other than that, i got tons of breeding and 0 casualities - minus the babies)

Ideas, comments, opinions would be appreciated.

I took home a stiphodon goby Monday. The next afternoon I found it on the floor dead. And I thought they couldn’t swim quickly or be able to jump. Guess I was wrong. My water line was about 0.5” from top of tank. Maybe yours jumped. Check behind/under your cabinet.
