Fish have dissapeared - Fish Gods have taken them


New member
I had a major sandstorm 2 night ago when one of my powerheads dropped into the sand. Fish were all just put into the tank so we still stressed from that.

Now that there is a bit of visibility ( not much but enough to see ) I cannot see any fish besides my clowns.

Nothing has floated to the top ( yet ). The seaweed I put in for the Tangs hasnt been touched.

These things have damn well vanished.

Any idea where the fish gods may have taken them.:uhoh2:

Off you have crabs they may have eaten your other fish. I did the same thing about a month ago and my crabs made quick work of my fish

Dead fish don't float....they get wedged underneath rocks usually. What exactly are the missing fish? And how long has the tank been running?

I have 3 small crabs and 3 cleaner shrimp.
Also just a protein skimmer... nothing

I dont think those cleaners could eat 2 small tangs, firefish, royal gramma, 2 gobys.

Maybe im wrong.

May be in hiding someplace.

Check the over flow. My clowns would always get into the overflow and get sucked into the sump. I didn't have a screen over the top of my herbie. I have since put a lid on my overflow.
