Re: 2 fish have disappeared #1
Yeah I have lifted up all rocks and bogwood and even inside the filter but nothing. So the GAE could really have eaten them? I didn't think they were carnivorous, he never eats the bloodworms/pellets/flakes....??

2 fish have disappeared #2
Hi there I have a tank which as of two weeks ago had:
2 clown loach (approx 8 cms long)
one GAE/sucking loach (approx 15 cms long)
one penguin tetra (approx 5 cms long)

and some new additions (added a couple of months ago):
2 flame tetra (both quite small a few cms long)
one black phantom tetra (now 3 1/2 cms long)
two mollies (both about 3 1/2 cms long) and
one siamese fighting fish (about 3 cms long).

A couple of weeks ago one of my flame tetra went lame and I noticed the gold mollie was having a go at it, nibbling and attacking it. It had lost it's buoyancy and I didn't want it to be eaten alve so I made the difficult decision to euthanase it. Last week the other flame tetra literally disappeared overnight. I looked for it but assumed it had suffered a similar fate and been eaten by another fish. Today my black mollie has disappeared overnight. I have searched everywhere and it is nowhere to be seen. I did a 10% water change yesterday and I'm sure it was there then and was fine.

I'm worried one of the fish is eating the others. The only ones that I think are big enough to do so are the GAE (but I thought it was an algae eater only and not carnivorous) and the clown loaches (but they seem quite tame).

Please if anyone can help me with this mystery I would be really grateful as I am worried about the remaining fish.

Re: compatible fish? #5
No there's only one it's the reflection.
He's a large GAE.

Re: compatible fish? #9
The loach were about 3 inches when I got them I think.

My goldfish all died, think an internal bacteria inside the male killed all the other fish before finally getting to him RIP

Shame as well as they had such big personalities.

So I made a fresh start with the tropical fish.
