Can a Moonlight gourami eat an adult guppy??
Hi I have had 2 adult guppys completely vanish over the space of a couple of nights and I have searched everywhere inc the filter, plants, rocks ect and there is no trace of them (not even little bones) I have had them and the gourami (the biggest fish in the tank) for ages and the only thing I can think of is that he has ate them??
To answer your question, yes, a mature Moonlight Gourami could easily eat small fish. If you check our profile (click the shaded name) it mentions that the gourami attains 6 inches and will likely view small fish as food. It also mentions some suitable tankmates (provided you have sufficient tank space of course).

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
