 Hi  Guys,
 
 This  is  the  third  time  this  is  happening  with  me.  In  the  past  i  had  lost  a  Zebra  danio  and  a  female  guppy  and  could  not  find  a  trace  of  them.  Today  i  realised  one  of  my  Tetra  has  disappeared.  My  tank  size  is  48x15x18  and  have  river  sand  as  substarte.  I  also  have  a  good  growth  of  Giant  Vallesneria  on  the  corners  of  my  aquarium.i  Did  try  to  see  in  the  plants  if  the  fish  was  stuck  there  but  could  not  find  anything
   My  filter  is  a  HOB  filter  and  has  a  nozzle  so  that  the  small  fish  cant  get  sucked  in.  Other  fishes  include  mainly  community  fish  like  platys,  mollies,  tetras  and  a  a  pair  of  tiger  barbs(  who  keep  within  themselves)  Also  have  2  ┬ásmall  plecos  in  the  aquarium.  
 Any  suggestions  as  to  where  my  fish  are  disappearing?

 Hi  Yogesh
 
 Those  were  my  initial  thoughts  but  have  never  seen  the  tigers  chasing  the  other  fish.  They  chase  eachother  and  are  quite  content  with  it.  There  are  times  when  they  try  to  nip  an  odd  guppy/  tetras  tail  but  the  fish  soon  hide  within  the  plants
   However  are  plecos  known  to  eat  dead  fish?   Surprised

 i'll  agree  with  yogesh  for  the  pleco  because  plecos  are  scavengers  as  well.  they  will  eat  on  the  dead  fish  etc.
 also,  what  if  the  fish  are  dying  the  natural  death?  
 how  frequently  the  fish  have  disappeared.  all  in  a  short  span  of  time  or  over  a  large  span  of  time.  it  may  so  happen  that  they  are  dying  the  natural  death.  i  would  not  suspect  tiger  barbs  as  if  they  are  mean  then  they  will  not  wait  until  night  to  get  mean  to  any  other  fish.  they'll  be  mean  rightaway....

 hi  mudjawd
 
 This  the  third  time  in  a  month  this  has  happened.  I  am  seriously  doubting  that  keeping  2  plecos  was  a  bad  bad  idea  since  i  am  noticing  that  one  pleco  is  growing  nicely  and  is  more  dominant.  i  used  to  substitute  there  diet  with  cucumber  pieces.  after  noticing  this  i  have  got  algae  wafers  rightaway.  I  hope  this  solves  the  problem.  Else  i  will  have  no  choice  but  to  remove  one  of  them  ,  pity  but  i  really  like  both  of  them.

 plecos  are  aggressive  towards  each  other.  better  to  give  one  away.

 Tigers  they  are  buddy..
 
 I  lost  2  guppies  to  them..  found  skeleton  of  only  one.
 
 I  introduced  8  zebra  danios..  24  hours  later,  only  6  were  there.  Not  even  a  trace  of  the  other  two.  When  I  looked  closely,  the  remaining  ones'  fins  were  nipped.  Only  now  they  look  comfortable  together  in  the  tank  and  danios  have  learnt  to  evade  tigers.
 
 I  was  under  the  same  impression  that  tigers  were  not  chasing  the  others..  
 
 Cheers!

 Plecos  do  not  kill  &  eat  fish.
 Tiger  barb  might  haress  the  fish  you  have.  The  fish  would  eventually  get  weak  &  die.
 The  dead  fish  would  then  might  be  eaten  by  both  tiger  and  pleco.

 I  thought  you  hated  the  Plecos  and  wanted  to  give  it  away....I  personally  think  you  should  concentrate  on  the  plant  part  of  your  tank  and  once  thats  taken  cake  of  introduce  a  school  of  neon  tetras...about  40-50  of  them....What  say??

 tiger  barbs  are  notorious  fin  nippers.  I  would  suggest  you  take  them  out  cause  they  will  never  stop  harrassing  your  other  quiter  fish.
