Postby Skysters » Wed Oct 03, 2012 1:06 pm

i had 14 last night ,woke this morning too 13 .. couldnt see where it would be ,, so im gathering the clownloaches and the golden sucker fish has eaten it :S

i counted 13 before i took kids to school this morning , and now there is only 12 , cannot again see where a dead fish could be :S

are my loaches eating them ?

the neons have been swimming about up and down the tank well all over and not one of them looked ill , just as neons shud be swimming in a shoal

any one have any ideas , i cant see that any of the fish are chasing tormenting the neons

any ideas plz ??

in my tank i have

3 clown loaches
1 golden sucking loach
3 platties
2 apple snails
and now 12 instead of 14 neons

Once dead they will be most probably eaten, hence no bodies.

At a guess, it's either water quality issues or the poor Neons took a 'hit' when your temp went up to 29degress
