Yep. Could have died, then had the others scavenge in that short of time. I've seen full grown fish dissapear just an hour after I last saw them. Consider how tetras dart towards food when it gets in the tank. Imagine what fresh meat would be like to them.

Sorry to hear about your loss, in any case.

Did you check the floor?

I find it highly unlikely that 2 corries and a tetra could eat a whole male betta in 1 night and not leave a trace...

I agree with this statement. There should be considerable "trace" of a fish the size of a betta in that time frame. Have you checked behind the intakes of the filter, under the lip of it, etc. They can lay so still...

Sounds very fishy. I have had the same thing happen, a Betta vanished like that.

I found that it got stuck in the filter intake, and had been fully sucked through and blended up. Don't know how, but it did.

Have a good full look around the tank, and floor also filter.

There is no way Corys and a few Tetras could do that.
