He died and his pals made with some ceremonial cannibalism.

I also think he died and the other fish ate him. It's normal.

Doesn't take long....I have seen a good-sized bridgesii completely cleaned out in 2-3 hours, and tankmates waste no time getting to it.

I left the house for an hour and came back to an empty gold snail shell. I'd forgotten to move my snails when I got my loaches. :P
