I recently got two Otocinclus for my 45 litre guppy tank about maybe two weeks ago. I have recently noticed however that one is missing !!!
I moved everything, plants, the piece of wood, looked around the filter (where they hide) and even moved some of the gravel and stones, I can't find no scale or fin of him. I only have guppies in the tank, and I don't think he could have been tank up into the filter, the cover is too thin for him to fit through.
what do you think has happened ? the whole tank surface is covered by a lid, so there's no where he could have jumped up. I haven't noticed any remains on the bottom or top of tank.
what the heck has gone on ? the only thing I can think of, is he maybe died quite a while ago without my noticing, and the other otocinclus, guppies and shrimp ate the remains ? I am abit worried, if he did die, what caused it ? my water's always tested, I have recently been adding some fin rot medicine for one of guppies, and some plant food tablets in the gravel. any thoughts ?
I want to get another otocinclus, since the guy in the tank is there on his own :(
