Now you say that I put two crawfish in a community tank it was ok for a week or so then fish started disappearing 7 in all,now I didn't see the crawfish attack anything never the less I decided to put them in a tank where I only have striped danios and sure enough one has disappeared and that's it since then I've lost nothing.so maybe the fish was on his last legs,as for the community tank ?????????
