Missing Fish?

I had a fish in my tank last night which appeared to be suffering from swim bladder disease. I went to go get medication today after work, and when i get home, the fish isnt to be found anywhere.

I think i read somewhere that snails can eat dead fish, but i seriously doubt these 2 smaller snail could have eaten a glass fish in a few hours.

Any ideas? Do glass fish dissappear like obi wan did in ep 4?

i had a friend who told me a story(it's a true story). It went like this:

One day I was looking at my pretty blue betta. I decided to go to the store with my parents. When I got home I went to check on my betta. When I peered into the tank he was not there!!! Where was he? I have no pets to eat him!! There was no one in the house!! I looked around the floor, all over my room, and still could not find him. I looked all over his little bowl. I STILL could not find him. I never found him.


It was sad that my friend could never find her betta!!! SHe never knew where it went. I guess it's one of those weird mysteries in life.
