I starting get the feeling the white fantail would have been better of in the 10 gallon til he got bigger -_____- to live 2 or 3 inches.wait isn't a black moor a fancy? wonder why it's not affecting him?he is like the biggest one in the tank bigger than the comet surprisingly and they both avoid that strong filter event with the plant aound.

you know what that is what i am thinking too actually,cause fish are known to eat other fish normally i find my dead fish on the gravel on their sides or floating around the top but this was the first time the comet and black moore would have consumed them.i was like where the heck is he i saw him under the bridge at 3 am in the tank then i get up this morning at 9 and i was like fishie disappeared on me. i knew he wasn't doing well after getting caught in the filter and wasn't doing well but i really could dignose(sp?) what was actually wrong with him.I did a giant water change afterwards though,well after having anrguement with my mom that fish can consume other fidh within hours and not days and he said there was no way or they be bloated.

Goldfish are vegetarians, and you would know if one got eaten, the others would be quite chubby.
Check the floor, they might of jumped out. Even if you have a lid they can get out, by betta got out of a a tank that the lid was duct taped on.
