My Guppy's Tail Is Gone...
 
So I wake up this morning, have a look into my tank, and 1 of my 3 guppies is missing half of his tail!?!?!?!? How did this happen? He was fine last night before I went to bed... He is also very pale and has lost his colour. Did one of the others eat it? I am so upset right now!!!

Someone ate it and/or nipped it down to the flesh. Lack of color could be due to stress. He could also be sick, and that allowed/signaled others to see him as an easy target.

I agree. If possible put him in an isolation tank or he could die from who ever did this to him not stopping.
