I would have a couple of suspects for the other two fish. The turtle and the lobster.

But I really think the butler did it in the library with the candlestick.

But, again, it could have been the maid who did it in the bedroom with a rope.

Bad karma mayhaps. What you need is some real visual evidence of who is doing this. Assumptions and guesses
only punish the well behaved while the killing continues. I would spend as much time as possible just observing.
I would also set up lighted video monitoring system. Catch him red handed and deal out aquaman style justice.

Definately suspect the Lobster or Turtle as said. Maybe even the shark, but *most* freshwater sharks are peaceful. About how big are your platies and mollies?

I would suspect the lobster. Is this and indoor or outdoor pond? Could there be an non-resident of the pond coming in to fish? Or possible something is making the fish sick, and when they die, then the others are feeding on them.

Maybe the turtle, lobster or black ghost. If your pond is outside, then it might even be racoons. My pond has had racoons come and kill my fish sometimes.

either eaten or attacked, or just natural causes.....Then eaten by other fish. its what fish do best :)

LOL, but in seriousness the culprit is most likley the lobster or the turtle but there are other suspects such as an outsider harming the fish or even polutants from other yards or maybe the fish than you don't know the species is.
