rainbow shark or juwel filter murders

Postby shuvit » Sat Aug 11, 2012 11:00 pm

Hi there, the last few days we've added a few guppies and a few red nose zebra fins to our new (second hand mature) tank. We've woken up the past few mornings to said fish dead and stuck to side of filter.
There's a rainbow shark that came with the tank. He's unobtrusive during the day unless the fish invade his space. Is he killing my fish at night, or is the filter sucking them and holding them (no indication of this during the day). At a loss as what to do

:(

Never mind, turned off the lights and observed. We're now 1 more beautiful guppy down :-(
Shark has been removed.
