I lost a Panda Cory :(
Please help... By now my new aquarium has been running for about a month or so. Yest I did some change in setup and added some gravel, and now i noticed that one of my five Pandas has gone missing :( i tried to check as much as possible to find it but all in vain. If it died beneath the gravel or got trapped somewhere else how serious it is for the water chemistry ? will it contaminate the water?
thanks in advance

What's your water parameters? A rotting fish carcas will certainly mess up your water conditions. Also has your tank been set up and running for a month after it was cycled? Or a month including cycling?My therapist says I need a bigger tank . . . . .

A rotting fish will increase the ammonia in the tank so keep checking to make sure all your parameters stay good and vacuum your gravel well the next time you do a water change. I've also lost fish with no trace - I just make sure I check under everything and check the siphon tube to see what's being sucked up.
