Missing Discus?

    So I have had these three small blue diamond discus, with two blue turquoise, and a pigeon blood discus. All in my 125 gallon tank. They’ve all been perfectly fine for the past three months I’ve had them. Then today, I saw all the discus come up to eat, then I took a nap, woke up, and now I cannot find my third blue diamond anywhere! I have moved plants, moved rocks, and looked everywhere possible and can’t even find a body! We have a cat, and my wife believes I left the lid open, and the cat got the fish. It seems like the only logical answer, but the tank is deep, and the discus would’ve swam down. Anyone have any ideas? At this point I know he probably died somehow, but I just wanna find him to know!

    Geez...that really sucks...Unless figured how to go through walls, it's quite possible your cat had it for dinner.

    My guess is that something spooked the discus and it’s jumped. It’s happened to me.

    @Fashooga: Only thing is I’ve never seen my cat try to get in my 125!

    75g Discus Tank: Maybe he did, I checked all around the tank and found nothing, but maybe the cat came and picked him up.
