Erm.. so as of last night one of the Tiger Barbs is missing... It's a big mystery in my house at the moment. At first I thought it had died and someone just disposed of it without telling me, but that's not the case. We've looked in every part of the tank where a fish could possibly be and there's nothing. It's completely vanished. Do Tiger Barbs eat other Tiger Barbs? It was a pretty big fish so I have a hard time fathoming it, but it's the only other possibility I can think of at this point because that fish is nowhere to be found.

Yeah, tiger barbs can be pretty mean at times. And I've had barbs before where if a fish died, they would take care of it.

Do you have any other fish in there besides the barbs? I used to have a big fish that I gave feeder fish. My catfish I had would clean up after him.

So morbid...

Last time I had fish, I had bought my son about 6 or 8 fantail guppies.
Then he wanted bettas. So I got him 2 of those and one of the algae eaters, or whatever they are called.
Geez I didn't know about bettas. The next morning those fan tails were shreaded and the algae eater was dead.
I got them out and put them in separate bowls. Only one beta survived so I figured he was the killer.

Haven't had any fish since. But thinking about it now.

I have no fish, but the lab in college does. Last year they all dropped dead. Hoping for a better run this year.

One has a black eye though, sort of concerning.

I finally found some old pics of JD, my jack dempsey cichlid I had in the 80's, he was my only pet for more than 10 years. He was awesome.

No I just had the Barbs in there. There were 3 but one died last month. Still no sign of the fish and he's been refusing to eat, so it's seeming likely that he ate her. Crazy to think.

While I was working, apparently there sprung a leak in one of my tanks. It was half empty...and water is now still between the upstairs and the downstairs.

Luckily, Liesy found it and quickly put the fish into a bucket with the filter running in it as well for air. The fish are still alive, but I will need to wait for payday until I can get a new tank for them...

oh the drama!!!
