The only thing they could hide in or under would be my pirate cave and all that was in or under it was fish poo. And I checked out my plants too, to no avail. I hadn't seen them for 24 hours prior to the cleaning last night. I'm rather sad and ticked.
From what you said earlier, that the last two were hanging in the corner and not grazing, I suspect they lasted longer but succumbed as well to the ordeals of capture and transport and starvation during, and the other fish may have eaten them. It doesn't take long for a dead fish to disappear. If I'm correct, the otos were stressed and injury resulted (internal health issues, not implying injury by you) and some fish struggle on and others die quicker. B.

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]
I bought the original four thinking that most maybe all would pass, the reading I did prior to buying them said that they were pretty fickle little creatures. Of course they had to last long enough to get attatched to! I didn't name them, so I had hoped they'd make it. The ones I name right off the bat seem to die.
