I have a 55 gallon freshwater tank 3 bala sharks 4 rainbow sharks two of them albino 3 glow fish to angelfish elephant fish a algae eater and I had four neon tetras and they disappeared.. does anyone have and idea?
Thanks you very much Wendy I'm moving around the decorations nowAt one point (when I bought them) I had 6 neons and 4 glo-light tetras. Shortly after I did my first water change with them in there, I found that I could only see 3. I looked and looked for a dead fish but never found it. Now I'm down to two and don't know where the other went. I'm also down to 5 neons but one of them (if I remember correctly) died. the glo0lights are the mystery here. I have a couple ideas for mine. One, it could have been that when I was suctioning the gravel I sucked him up and didn't realize it. The other is that he died somewhere in the tank and I've yet to find him. However, all my water levels are fine so I don't think that is it. However the tetras are very small and I have a really good filter so maybe it wouldn't raise my levels too much...IDK I'm rather new to fishkeeping myself so I'm sure others might have some better ideas. The other thing I would consider if I were you is that it looks like your other fish are a bit larger than the neons and perhaps those neons were lunch for some of them. At the time I didn't have any fish much larger than the tetras (only cherry barbs) but I doubt they could have eaten the tetras. Who knows. I would at least check your water conditions (ammonia, nitrites, nitrates) to see if there is any elevation since the fish went missing. Then it might be a good idea to move around some of your decorations to see if they got caught up in or under them. Hope you figure it out.
