Pearl Danios eating other fish?
After being unable to do a deep clean on my main tank, I was working closely on it today and noticed rather than 5 Oto's and 10 ember tetras there were 2 Oto's and 6 embers. Could pearl danios have eaten these? Or could they have died without me noticing and been scavenged? I was under impression that the danios were peaceful, but since they're so much bigger...
When I had celestial pearls they wouldnt even eat the shrimp in the tank unless the caught a shrimplet out in the open. They will chow on a dead tank mate though. I suspect the other fish died from something else and became a midnight buffet for their old friends.

I find cpd's rather choosy with their foods. If one of their tank mates had died, I would suspect the scavengers like ottos on the carcass sooner than cpd's. They are a peaceful breed that easily outnumber any other species of fish and shrimp in my tank and do not appear to harass any others from my experience. I spend a fair bit of time daily gazing into the tank... My moment of zen seeing them and my crypts grow slightly each day... Ahhhh....
