I have a 36g bow front stocked with 8 neon tetra's, 4 cory cats and was stocked with 8 tequila guppy's, last night I had 7 of them, this afternoon I have 5. there are no bodies floating around, no skeletons. are the guppy's eating one another or is it the tetra's? I have egg crate on top of the tank, the group has been toghether about a month with no loses until lately.

When fish are sick they tend to hide.

Once the other fish find out they're weak, their fins will get nipped and eventually they'll die somewhere unseen in the tank.

If the guppies did die, the corys are probably the only fish in your tank that'll strip them down to bones unless you have snails.

When it comes to TOTAL carcass removal, snails are the best.

  • Anyway, there's something going on with your water that's causing the guppies to die off.
  • Could also be your filter isn't established yet.

Yup, with snails in my tank the only way I know a fish died is the pile of snails all in 1 spot for an hour or so then they disperse and there isn't a trace left.

Sure they didn't jump? I found some guppy jerky laying behind the stand when I broke down my 90.
