Lost a minnow :-(

No idea where it went though lol. Was there yesterday. Came to work this am, and down to 2 from 3. Last time i lost one he was dead floating on the top. I figured hed be too big for the beta to eat him. Maybe eat at him if it died, (last time part of the tail was missing) but not the whole fish. I dont see it getting sucked into my filter. So unless somone took it, id have to say the beta ate it?

I was thinking the same thing! I'm no expert, but I did have a goldfish that jumped out of his bowl..found him behind the TV the next day....Odd!

Hi Scott,
if its missing, one of two solutions.
A- it jumped out and you will find it a fish cracker somewhere.
B- it passed away in the night and the other fish/frog ate it.

Hey all. Yes, i have a fully covered tank. No way for him to get out. So i guess that leaves option B. Poor lil guy.

Yes, no matter what happened it will be a missed fish.
White clouds are so great.
My condolences again for your loss Scott.

Thanks. Maybe I'll keep just the two. 3 might be pushing it. Maybe the Beta is telling me somthing.
