We have a 72 gallon tank with different types of fish. Yesterday, when I started to feed them, I noticed my bala shark was nowhere to be found. He was always the first to come get the food. I've had him since I had my tank (about 1 1/2 years).
He was a good size fish but I still can't find him. I looked all over (even out of the tank on the floor).......Nothing. He was too big to just disappear to where I can't find him. My husband thinks my Pleco ate him. But can he eat him that fast? He was one of my favorites. All my other fish are doing good. I checked all the readings and that all came back good.
Aren't Bala's supposed to live between 8 to 10 years? What could have happened to him? All my fish get along with each other.
A pleco wouldn't eat another fish. How big is your bala? They should really be kept in schools.
Do you have lots of areas where he could be hiding under? Look for a skeleton ): He might have died and then the other fish ate the dead body
That would be my guess. Fish do make pretty quick work of the dead in a tank. Also, if you have snails, shrimp etc... they assist in the process.
