whats happened!?
 
hello everybody,

I was looking at my tank today and noticed that all of my 7 neon tetras ( Paracheirodon innesi ) except for 1 have dissapeared. They are not hiding anywhere in the tank because there isn't any hiding spot big enough for 7 of them and those places are under 2 pieces of driftwood.

Does anyone know what has happened to my neons? :(

best regards, flatcam1

Do you have an internal filter Cam? If so, check inside there. How long have you had the tetras for?

flatcam1 01-23-2007 04:04 AM

a long time, about 10 months.... :)

Okay, and have you checked the filter? 7 tetras is a lot of fish to disappear at once!

What else do you have in the tank with them?

Had a chat with Cam and I came up with the following information.:)

The last time he saw his neons was 3 weeks ago.

None of the tetras in my opinion would have killed the neons unless the tetras are serpaes, Buenos Aires or the larger species including the African species. Murders can happen if cramped for space which I believe is not the case in Cam's.

The following factors I have listed:
1. They died and may have dissolved immediately. Take note neons are very small and small fish can dissolve quickly. Check the ammonia and nitrites.
2. The snails and plecs ate them. With so many snails, there is a chance the neons' bodies have been eaten in a matter of hours.

And unless I am mistaken, the last option is the filter which Cam will update sooner or later once he checks it.:)

A question worth answering is how the neons died. This baffled me as none of the fish he listed can kill neons with the exception of some tetras considered to be most often aggressive.
