What about the puffer's poison? Would that hurt the scavengers? What if it was eaten, and the poison was released into the water?

I located the blue hermit crab as well. So it is only the shrimp and the two fish that are gone.

Just thought of something today. Could any of the fish or the other creatures eaten the puffer's teeth? They have a beak-like structure for cracking shells. If nothing ate them, maybe someone could try to find them in the tank?

What about adding a fish or two to the tank and setting up a camera? I'm intrigued too so I'm stalking this thread too!! LOL.

They did add more fish. I first saw them the day I noticed the puffer was gone, which was either 1 or 4 days after I had last looked (I didn't look over the weekend, and I can't remember if I did the day before.) I suggested getting a camera, and offered to pay, but the stock manager didn't seem interested. I'm leaning towards them being dead, and if there are any leftover bones or such, there's a lot of white substrate for them to settle into.

Only other thing is, if the tank doesn't have a lid on it, and the fishies got to chasing, they coulda jumped outta the tank. I've had this happen a time or 2. ( stupid chromis )

The tank has a lid. Thanks for the idea, though.
