  1. Question My Malawi Peeps!!!

    Do fish just disappear !? As of right now in my peacock hap tank i have a missing fish and i cant find him at all, the same thing happened multiple times when i had my 55g mbuna tank years ago fish will just start missing one by one seriously. I havent witnessed any type of bullying on the missing fish so its hard to believe he got killed and ate by everyone else all i the matter of overnight. I checked around the tank he didnt jump out. Theres no remains nothing he was one i was going to take back to the LFS because he had absolutely no color but still.

    have you checked underneath the stand or your whole room ? fish can get around pretty good even out of water ... i would think it has to be somewhere

    How big is the missing fish and do you have driftwood in your tank?

    the fish was about 3 inches and i have rocks but i looked in all the crevices with a light an i dont see him. Feeding time could be found . The thing is i never seen him get bullied by anyone. I havent came across him on the floor or anything either would that leave a smell?

    When our mbuna tank was going together we had a couple fish disapper overnight. They were only about 2 inches but when we took our cichlid stones apart we could not find them.

    I can see behind and in the crevices i made and nothing. No rocks had fell so i know he didnt get crushed. I was going to get rid of him eventually anyways just hope he isnt traped and messing up my water quality.

    Hey BB he has to be somewhere unless he was eaten but even then i doubt they could eat it within the time frame of you noticing he was missing what about the filters have you checked there ? maybe buried in the sand ? just thinking of places it could be

    BB I have had this happen. I believe you'd find bits and parts of a completely stripped clean spine if you were to completely remove your hardscape. Sometimes a fish can die and be eaten within a few hours(overnight) in African setups. Especially in the presence of a larger catfish or group of them as is my case. Who knows, he might have eaten it bones and all if he is really large. How big is he might I ask?
    Coastie-to-be... hopefully.
