Do any other fish eat plecos?

We had two plecos for about 2 years and now they are goine! I have 6 gold fish, fan tails, an oranda, and a huge white gold fish about 4"s long, and 5 sword tails. I just got the sword tails about 3 weeks ago! I have lost both plecos and another tiny oranda since they have been here, so I am wondering if they ate them? I mean they are so tiny compared to my plecos??? I just don't get it?????

Have you checked the floor? - seriously...

A couple years ago my pleco (about 8 inches long) just disappeared from my aquarium, my aquarium was mostly covered except for a slit by the power filter at the back, so I didn't think to look around on the floor to find him.....

After vacuuming a few weeks later, I found it had jumped out and moved across the room under my bed. It was a sad day, but I was quite impressed that it had moved so far (no pets or anything that would've helped it along either).

We took every thing out of the tank! WE had two of them and they are just gone! My tank is totally covered with the lights and the covers that go over an aquarium too! I suspect one of the fish in there had something to do with this but I have never had aggressive gold fish! I just got the swordtails, but they are so small I am thinking NO WAY!
