I came home last night to find the fish in my 10 gallon behaving very strangely, and also noticed a few were missing and presumed dead. When I pulled the tank out to see what was going on, it was...

Ok - I made a few adjustments to the tank. One fish died and I returned the platy and swordtail.

Got it. Will definitely research the other filter options as well. I understand the cycle, but figured that since all 9 fish were living happily for for 2 months or so that everything was in balance...
