I have a 13 gallon tank. Parameters amm <.25 (high amm level in tap water...adding second filter tomorrow), nitrite 0, nitrate <10. Inhabitants: 5 neon tetras, 2 black flame tetras, 2 endler livebearers, 5 RCS, 1 mystery snail.
We added the 2 endlers on sat of last week. I have been keeping a close eye on them as I don't have a qt set up yet. They have been active and eating. No aggression or hostility with any tank mates. One prefers the middle to the too of the tank, the other goes all over, but likes to hide in the plants towards the bottom of the tank. Last night when I fed them, I saw the one that likes to hide on the bottom of the tank, seemingly swimming in place. I was worried, but as soon as I put food in, he started eating it off the gravel and driftwood, then eventually joined the masses at the too of the tank to polish off the rest. I observed him for about an hour and a half, and he was swimming all over the tank, acting completely normal. I saw him last at 9pm. At 8 this morning, I turned on the lights and did my normal stock check. I couldn't find him anywhere. I moved the decorations, ruffled the plants, checked the filter, nothing. There is no trace of a body either. Would the other inhabitants have eaten every last bit of the body, and that quickly?
