    Hi guys

    It was about 4 days that I hadn't seen my little catfish (about 6 cm), I searched between rocks and shelves and it wasn't there. suddenly I found a tiny part of its skin was floating in water. is it possible? who ate it? I keep 2 rasboras, 2 neon tetras, 2 guppies and 1 goldfish. are they omnivorous? did they eat it? oh... I feel violated. I liked that little catfish. it was getting a bit bigger.:( I don't even know why it died, it was doing great. first my little turtle that I told you about yesterday and now my catfish. it's depressing.
    by the way it seems the turtle decided to open its eyes finally.

    awww ...im sorry for your loss :( rip lil catfish!
    if I had to guess out of your list, it was the goldie....:( which needs a cold water tank compared to the others .....but if it passed first, anyone of those fish cold have picked at him ..

    wow, Bahareh,
    you've had a rough time with your pets... :(
    I was thinking that probably he passed away, and then the others ate him.

    but it was healthy... I wonder if it's because of the goldfish, since I added it, I have lost the mother of my guppy fries and now the cat fish. do you think the goldfish produce too much waste?

    yes, they are huge waste-producers. If you have a goldie and those other fish in the 20 gallon, without extremely good filtration, you've probably got an ammonia problem.

    so I think I'd better to remove it from the main tank and keep it separately. thank you for your information.
