Dead danio search?
I have six zebra danios in my 55-gallon tank. One appears to be missing, so I think it might have died. The tank has a plethora of fake plants, so searching for it means undoing everything and replanting.
If indeed it has died - it was used for cycling the tank, so its life expectancy should be pretty short - is it crucial that I locate the carcass, or is it not a big deal? There are a couple of trumpet snails at the bottom that would probably clean up any "leftovers," but I do not want the dead fish to disrupt the biological filter, pollute the water, or pose a danger to my other fish in the tank.
I am more than willing to hunt for it if this is necessary (today is even water change day), but if it doesn't really matter, I won't bother. Thanks!
