Thanks guys, i had alot of fun making that. I was REALLY tired last night. IN all serious though i agree that something happened in the 40 hours, wheather it was a sickness or a injury you didn't spot. I very much doubt it was suicide (even though thats always a possibility, lol). Take comfort that your clean up crew was doing its job and cleaned it up for you. Did you remove the rest of the body if there was any just in case if it was sickness?

No possibilty of suicide at all. And the CUC did not kill him. He died and the CUC "do what dey do".

MFD (mysterious fish death/disappearance). Happens all too often. CUCs are not fish predators, they are your Clean Up Crew. IF it wasn't for them you may have had an ammonia spike from the dead, decaying fish that could have caused more death.

I recently lost a 5 year old Foxface Lo. Was it just time or did something happen (disease). One day it was fine, the next day it was on it's side stuck to a powerhead, gasping for air while no other fish was affected.

It happens. Sorry for your loss.

yeah i guess he must have just died out of nowhere. I didn't remove the dead fish, it was already gone by the next day.
