Moved my goldies from a 90 gal to a 150 planted about 3 weeks ago. I usually keep long fin danios in with my goldies, also mystery snails and 5 golden weather loaches. I moved 7 of the danios with 8 goldies into the new 150. Within 2 days I could only find 5 of the danios. I added lots of new plants, partly to provide more hiding places for the little ones. About a week later I added 6 more danios. I can't always get a good head count with all the plants, logs and rocks so I thought the danios were just hiding. I now think there are only 2 left out of 11 and one of the ryukins is all of a sudden like twice her previous size. She's so bloated she looks like a puffer. OK so I've come to the conclusion that I can't keep danios in there any more. Now today I do a headcount of the goldies and there are only 8 (I added one since the move - there are supposed to be 9!). The smallest one, but not that small, is missing - completely. I think my blimpy ryukin is on a murderous, canibalism spree and not sure what to do. There's really only one goldy, another ryukin that's smaller than her. Anybody experience anything like this? Do I have to remove her? Should I play "Don't bite your friends" from Yo Gabba Gabba for her? Any other ideas?
