Not sure if this is the right place for this, but I gotta start somewhere.

I've got a 10g long aquarium that had 6 guppys, 6 amanos, 1 assassin snail, and a small population of pond snail and ramshorns. . .

All my water parameters sit right in the ideal specs for guppies laid out on this site, I've been quite meticulous about it.

But recently, the guppies have been dying off. . . the funny thing is, I only found 2 bodies. . . and there's only 1 left. That's three MIA guppies.

I recently left for a week for business, and at the time of leaving, there were two guppies. . . now there's one. . . and no sign of the other.

Is there a chance that the other residents could have eatenthe bodies and left no trace?? As for the cause of death, i am really lost. . . like I said, water parameters are ideal.

Thanks in advance!

I've discovered that guppies sometimes jump, especially when they are playing and chasing each other. Mine get really animated.

Noticed one missing the other evening and looked down to find the little guy on the floor. Not sure how long he was out. Amazingly and luckily he recovered fully within 24 hours. Next day I bought a hinged glass lid that can keep everyone inside the tank.
