So I was at my LFS and got some free guppy fry. I brought them home and situated them in their tank (a rimless 5g). I check on them later that night and they all seem fine and accounted for.

The next day, I wake up and come out into the living room to see my cat drinking the water out of the tank. I yell at him and spray him with my awesome water bottle that goes all the way across the room, and continue with my morning.

When I finally get a chance to check up on the fish, I can't find one of the guppy fry and immediately look at the cat like really dude

It's the only explanation I have lol
Here's the culprit, so "innocent" and "unassuming" haha

Probably didn’t even notice it on the way down.
Our big orange boy got very overexcited when we got corys, and tried to eat one of them through the glass. I don’t think he ever figured out what he was doing wrong.

Well I can add to this. My buddy "Gunther " in my pic when he was a baby. Which I had to bottle feed him for 3 wks (he was abandoned). He sits in front of the tanks and cannot for the life of him figure out, where are they...when they swim to back of tank he tries to look for them in back of it and can't understand why they aren't there. Too funny!

The mother fish eat their young. Could of been the mother fish and if not and your cat ate the fish, you should always have a lid for your aquarium. I have four cats and two aquariums and I have never had a single issue.

You should have a lid for your aquarium especially having a cat in the house.

I got the baby guppies for free from the LFS, so I don't have a momma guppy. All that's in there are 2 pygmy corydoras (waiting to go into the other tank, that has a lid, with 6 more), 3 red cherry shrimp, and a mystery snail.

The tank is on a fireplace that the cat can normally sit on, so I'm training him to stay off it now. He's been doing really good. I cover the tank with a storage tote lid when I'm away to keep him "honest".

He seems pretty happy that he got a free meal.

Oh gosh. I found my cats twin. He loves watching the fish, but he’s getting a little too curious now.
They definitely do look a lot alike!!
