Can you not move all the rocks at once?

Take all the rocks out even if have coral on them and blast him out. But gotta find his entrance/rock to do this. Most likely gonna have to get the rocks out of the tank. Most coral will live for a while out of water. I'd search the tank at night with moon lights on or a small led flashlight to find it if you havent found him yet.

Use some kind of feeding stick or tongs with some food attached to it (may have to do it at night) and slowly move it around the rocks. Maybe you will see it poke out of its home when it smells the food.

I'd post this in the Mantis section for more experienced advice.
