Did my fish eat my other fish?

AutisticFishBlog

Hello,

I think my fish might have ate my other fish?? I’m not sure. He’s a full grown garra rufa, they are peaceful generally. I found one of my baby garra flavatra decapitated in the tank…. And my big garra rufa is the only culprit. I looked up found out that garra rufa sometimes will suck on other fish, but not really aggressively, and this can still sometimes damage the slime coat or scales. So did my big garra rufa decapitate my baby garra flavatra? Otherwise, what happened!??

I’ll include pictures of each for size.

Probably a natural death. The tankmates dined on the corpse.

Well they do occupy the same strata - so one would expect them to fight over territory a bit. If one is severely out-matched, if could certainly lead to a death.
