Fish suddenly gone

Hello all. A little over two weeks ago, I added some Golden White Cloud Minnows to my tank. For the first week, they did okay. Then I started losing them. I lost two over last weekend. And then, I noticed a few days later, two of them just randomly disappeared. Never saw any bodies or anything like that. I do also have some guppies in the tank and I wonder if they made a quick snack of them? All the other ones that died I saw though so I'm not entirely sure about that. I also checked on the floor and didn't see any fish bodies or anything like that. I have a lid on my tank anyways.

Any ideas?

Do you have snails? They can completely devour a fish overnight.

I remember once when three male swordtails mysteriously disappeared overnight. I searched all over the tank and outside around my setup. No luck. Months later as I was stripping the floor to lay down come ceramic tile i found three dessicated carcasses under a section of my baseboard heat. A good 8 feet away from the tank. The mysteries of nature.

Nope. No snails. And wow. that's crazy. I find it hard to believe that they would get out by jumping though as I said have two glass lids on the tank. But, you never know I guess.
