A week and a half ago I added a small school of 8 neons to my newly cycled and heavily planted 10 gallon. Today the smallest of them is missing which is not surprising, but kind of sad because although it was half the size of the rest it was starting to eat really well. Anyway, I can't find its body. Nothing in the filter, nothing floating. I dismantled my scape looking for it... nothing. SOS. Should I do daily water changes until it's found?

Anyone else ever lost a fish?

It doesn't take long for tankmates to eat a small corpse. I very rarely find the corpses of little tetras and cyprinids in my tanks.
Morbid but logical. I'll keep testing the water for problems.

Did you check the floor around the tank? Could have jumped.
Never pegged neons for jumpers! Is that common? And I don't think so, I have a lid. If he did get through the half inch gap by the filter, he's probably dog food by now.
