Disappearing Fish
well this is the only place i thought this would fit because it could be called a disese. well it started out all my cycling fish were good 3 damsels, one 3 strip, one yellow tail, one blue fin. one morning the yellow tail was gone without a trace. than i became sad but got over it. next night i see wierd behavor in the blue fin. sort of sapzing :sick: than next morning fish gone without a trace. now i have the three stripe and he is sort of swimming weirdly but has lasted almost two days and a half during this trouble. what is going on. 3 stripe smallest by almost an inch:cry:

We need details. Describe your setup and post water tests. We need test results for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH, alkalinity, and calcium at minimum.

It is not unusual in saltwater for fish to disappear. Small fish are readily eaten by the crabs, snails, and other small critters in your sand bed and rock.

Yes, the anemone could easily be the problem. You should not be keeping sensitive marine animals in your setup.

It means their feelings get hurt real easily, so don't yell at them...
