Do you have any pictures?
What are your current water parameters?
Do you have a separate hospital tank?
Which fish missing, the one without a tail or the one with pop-eye?
My suggestion is to pick up a bigger tank, with good filtration and perform routine water changes and filter maintenance if you want to keep the fish healthy.
Ok, I have been trying so hard to get pics, but my computer upstairs has crashed so yeah I couldn't even get the crappy photos on here. Can I even test the water with the meds in the tank? It seems like the colour of the water would throw off the results. I don't have a separate tank as of right now, but I am working on that. The fish with like no tail is the one who disappeared (sorry I thought I said that the first time but I forgot) and like I've been looking at the fish that had the eye problem and it doesn't look like anything is wrong with it anymore :S I'm getting so frustrated I would really like to know where the fish went off too.. It's not like it would have gotten very far. I'll go look at the fish that had the eye problem... Ok, now that I have checked the eye problem is gone but theres like... looks to be a scale missing or something on another fish. Jeez I'm just full of problems, sorry. And I just discovered this camera works on this computer (yay) I'm not 100% sure how to post pictures so this may take a few trys.
