You'll just have to set up a little bed-tank for the flighty hatchets so they can sleep with you.

Haha I will! Or get those 'thunder shirts' for the dogs, and the fish. I'm sure they'd love it, hah.


I thought maybe they'd be dying.. But there's nothing abnormal about the tank parameters. The hatchets are all from the same group, too.. I only bought them at most two weeks a part. And they were the only new fish in the tank they were put in.. There's some other fish in there who have been there a while.

I had no issues with the first four. I wonder why the next five would have issues, granted I have no idea if it's the new fish or 'old' fish that are disappearing..

I usually do find a corpse unless there's something in the tank that'd eat it whole. Creepily enough, usually I have a shrimp that's like dug itself inside the fish skeleton and it usually crawling around the substrate inside the dead fish. It's a creepy but morbidly hilarious thing to see. I usually only lose the tiny fish.. I feel like these guys are big enough that not much could eat them. Unless the whiptail can. It doesn't look super fat though... I literally saw 10 this morning, so I would've thought there'd be some shred of evidence. Oh well..

Hopefully I don't lose any more. They're cheaper if I buy at least 5 at a time, so maybe I'll have 14 instead of 12.
