    Mandarin Disappeared

    Iíve got a problem, Spotted Mandarin I got on Sunday just disappeared over night. On Sunday, Mandarin was very calm not bothered by any other fish, looking for pods and I can't see him since that Sunday.

    Iíve been checking everywhere, but can't see a trace of the fish. Everything looks fine, all other fish (Yellow and Hippo Tang, Flame Angel, Orchid Dottyback, Percula Clown and Sixline Wrasse) are ok and there plenty of pods everywhere.

    My tank is only 55G and I've checked almost everywhere.

    Any idea what could happened to the Mandarin, it has been missing for 3 days?

    Do you have an anemone? It may have gotten hungry.

    It probably died and you're cleanup crew ( including the hitch hikers such as brislteworms), took care of it.

    Don't have an anemone or overflow.

    It looked pretty healthy and fat, if it died the ckeanup crew would be able to to take care of it in 1 night?

    I've got 2 of these Elephant ears mushrooms 5íí each, which I heard can catch the fish. Mandarin was hanging out in that area, but they were open next morning. I doubt they would digest it overnight.

    Doo-e... that was uncalled for... you could of easily left out that last part and still get your point across. Please keep this in mind for future posts.

    Doo-e, I don't think that comment was needed. In my opinion, it was extremely rude. Many people keep fish with corals that can, on occasion, eat a fish. Some people even keep fish with other fish that sometimes eat them. We don't plan on something getting eaten but it does happen.
