killer fish!

Yeah, wow.

So i fed my fish yesterday and all of them were there, none were dead or acting wierd. So this morning i go to feed my fish and there is a tiger barb floating at the bottom of the tank.

All his fins were eaten off. His entire stomach area was gone. His eyes were gone. His mouth was all torn up.

I think i might have a killer fish in my tank. lol

Its been setup for more than 6 months and this is the first problem

Both the eel and pleco would take advantage of a dead fish and view is as a free meal. I would doubt either would be able to chase down and kill a healthy tiger barb. Could have been this barb became weakened from being nipped at or harrassed by others ,and finally succumbed.
