Cool Red honey garoumi eat other fish?

Hey, so here's the deal, my bf and I have a 20gal tank with 3 plates (wags) 1 female and 2 males, my female is in the process of giving birth almost every 4 weeks now, we have 6 fry that are about 4 weeks old who have survived and yesterday I saw three new ones and today there seem to be only one left, so i'm assuming they either got eaten last night or my bf could have maybe sucked them up today while cleaning the tank and poured them in the sink without looking. We also have (had 5 but now have) 4 neon tetras, 2 guppys, a red honey garoumi, a dwarf frog, two snake type of fish not sure what they're called but they eat anything at the bottom of the tank mostly algae and flakes, an algae eating fish again not sure what it is called and lastly a snail. Now obviously our tank has become overcrowded with the fries in there so we are looking for a second tank to keep all our wags together. Now last week I noticed that one of our Neon Tetras were missing, and its body is nowhere to be found in the tank, I removed all the ornaments to search for him and there is no sign of his body anywhere, so i'm wondering -since garoumis are normally known to be territorial, nippy and normally the bully of the tank, could it have been possible for him to have rated the neon tetra overnight?

I'd be looking more so at the "snake type" fish and the algae eater. Can you provide any pictures? Gourami could have easily eaten the fry though, any of the fish could have for that matter.

Here is two pictures of the Algae eater I was speaking about:

and the snake like thing:

The fry at this point (considering we have 6 of them already) I'm not too concerned about, i'm sure my wag that can be found normally hiding in the ornaments would have probably eaten them, but anyone of them might have as well, but since the aquarium is overcrowded at this point we are just letting nature take its course until we can provide some of our fish a new home. Until then they're stuck in a 20gal tank.

The snake like thing is a Kuhli Loach, very funny little things. The algae eater is a Siamese Algae Eater. I am not sure either are quite aggressive but I'll leave that to the pros. Kuhli's like to be in larger groups though.

I have still yet to find my long fin bristle nose pleco or my pearl danio... it's like they vanished.
