Cory Missing!

As you know, Brie recently got a few cories. One is missing now and we have looked all through the tank, around it, and also in the filters. We've lifted up every rock. We still can't find it! Where else can he be????

Nothing is big enough to eat it, even the Angels, not without leaving some sign behind.

Hi Becca.

Does your tank have glass covers? Cories can jump and all fish do. Try to search again the filters, rocks, plants, etc. Double search as this will help you narrow down the possibilities.
If you have cats, then they can be one of the likely suspects.

Angelfish will never eat cories. Not with the cories' spines.

Ok, we are double-checking now.
Her tank is totally covered, there is a small space in between the light and the filter casing but it would be hard to jump through that, even for the tiny cory. But we are still checking anyway.
We don't have any pets in the house except birds. ;)

Do you have any plecos in the tank? If so, the cory could have died and the pleco could have eaten the dead fish.

Never mind, we have found him. He got caught up in the filter and I guess was torn up by the fan. He didn't survive. There are these small holes on the bottom of the screen on the tube that comes down; he must have swum up there and was like Nemo...

If I can remember correctly, Brie has a Striped Raphael Catfish. This can be another possibility.

I'm sorry to hear of your loss -- I understand how awful it feels to discover such a disturbing fish death
