Losing fish in a ONE gallon tank, help!

I have a gallon tank with 6 white cloud minnows, and many plants. But last week 1 fish has disappeared, i thought it jumped out but i couldn't find it anywhere, and today 1 more fish is gone! I wonder if my other fish eats them, they are all white cloud minnows (feeder size). Let's assume the latter, at least I will be able to see the dead body right?? But I can't find any! Any ideas?

I would move the fish to a larger tank. 10 gallon minimum for a fish as active as WCMM.

Is this a joke? You are pulling our legs right? Are we on Candid camera? Being punk'd? Is that you Ashton Kutcher?

1. Your fish are being eaten by other fish/snails and being broken down by the bacteria in your tank very quickly.

2. Your fish are dying because you have 6 fish in a one gallon tank.

Hope that answers your questions.

BTW, check the floor in front and behind the tank for any crispy critters. They may have jumped out.

Aggression between fish and no place to run or hide is one reason that even peaceful fish will jump out.
Poor water conditions is another.

ONLY THING THAT SHOULD BE KEPT IN A 1G IN VERY FEW TINY SHRIMP OR SNAILS. Get your fish a new larger tank with filter NOW.

Due to photobuckets new bs cost for use of images on forums I have deleted all photobucket accounts. I apologize if you enjoyed or found my photos helpful.
