Missing Fish
I havent been on the site in awhile......but its pretty weird i was doing a water change and i noticed my 2 swordtails swimming around.....then about 2 days later i noticed 1 of them gone......i doubt any of my other fish could have eaten him....i think it is pretty funny but strange i looked all over my tank for it even in my filter and still havent found any sign of him lmao damn.......any ideas to what might have happened???

Either your angelfish or the CAEs managed to eat the body.

I once had a swordtail jump through the heater opening in the top of the hood. I found her on the floor four days later underneath a pair of shoes.

I had a very similar experience as Julie did, now I always check behind, around, and below the tank when a fish is missing.

In fact, now that I think about it - the first time that happened to me was with a swordtail!

Hope that helps,
