Same here - 4 newly added Neon Tetras gone this morning

Had the same experience with 4 new *tiny* neon tetras I bought last night.

My 20 gallon long has been established for about 9 months. Tested the water before putting them in: nitrite = below .3 ml / ammonia = 0ppm / pH = 7. I believe water quality is good because of the consistent test results, and the growth / health of the plants and fish.

Put the juvie neons in last night, they seemed to be acclimating, but were the smallest in the tank and took shelter near the stalks of the Cryptocornes. This morning I couldn't find them anywhere. I'm curious if the tank mates have eaten them proactively, or perhaps if the neons died from the stress of being transported, the tankmates ate the bodies?

Tank mates / suspects:
- small snails
- 1 Juvenile Clown Pleco
- 3 Jumbo Japonica/Amano Shrimp
- 2 Adult Schwartz Corys
- 2 Dwarf Loaches (Yasuhikotakia Sidthimunki)
- 1 Adult Female Mollie (Female)

With he neon's I have found when the go missing they are the only fish you will find its corpse in a strange location under stuff under a leaf. Aside from the molly I would not be much help as I never owned those fish so I dont know much about them.

Thanks guys, for the feedback. I think they died and are either hidden, sucked up in the filter, or eaten by snails, shrimp and others.

Was just curious if there was a species in my tank particularly hungry for small bodies.
