This is a bit crazy, however, I have had my 20 gallon running with 5 bettas, 2 flagfish and 2 pencilfish. I bought some feeder goldfish for our Flowerhorn and through a few in the tank. Now the lid on the tank is very jump free and jumping out is not possible. The next night I came home from work and my male Betta and one of the babies were missing, no trace of them at all, no dead body or parts laying anywhere in the tank and I uprooted all possible hiding spots and no sign of them at all?!? Im just really confused about this, is it possible that the goldfish killed them and ate them? Just looking for possibilities here, there was zero aggression in the tank and I am out of answers. Any shared opinions are appreciated, thanks.:fish9:

Oh yeah, here are pics of the missing fish, not small at all. I say baby because my male and female bred and I had 3 survivors over all.
