As I was searching for the three fish which occupy the tank (two danios and a sucker fish) I was only able to find two. I searched high and low for the second danio but to no avail. My question is, do sucker fish eat dead fish? It's my only expanation.
This kinda sucks because now I can't let my remaining danio swim all alone, they like to school and he kinda looks lonely in there by himself. I really didn't want to buy two more fish.
Oy, it's been a long month.
If you mean plecos? Yes they will eat dead fish, or anything thats rotten for that matter.
How big is your pleco? What type is it as well. The larger and older they get the more dominant and aggressive they get.
I had one live to be 9 yrs old, just died a few months back, and was over a foot long. He was a domestic pleco, or common pleco.
I used to work at a pets store and was the fish know it all, yippee for me
