OK, How fast can a fish be totally consumed in an aquarium. I left the house at 8:45a.m. today got home around 6:00p.m. this evening. When I went to check on the tank one of my fish was missing and has not shown him self yet. Now this is a 20 Gal nano tank that has 2- hermit crabs, sand star, fire goby, turbo snail, and a cleaner shrimp. IF the clown died would there be no trace of him in 10 hours, I mean no skeletal remains, nothing. Moved all my live rock and nothing. This is so weird. No way he could have jumped out as the tank was covered, other wise I could accept that he jumped out and a cat got him, but the cover was on tight. This is making me crazy. Help with any ideas.
Thanks

what kind of filtration are you using...are you running a skimmer. if you are running HOB filters look in them..ive had fish, and shrimp end up in there..amazing thing was they were all still alive.

Mystery Solved, He ended up in the refugium! I checked that thing 5 or 6 times! Today I was going to change the micro alge and it was all gone! then I looked and saw him swimming around! My son said that figures because his name is...you guessed it, Nemo!!

looks like your clown liked the macroalgae! what kind were u using? o and just to inform there is a little confusion: macroalgae(AKA seaweed) is the kind u use in a refugium, microalgae is the algae that forms a "mat" over rocks and glass that u keep out of or in your display tank, depending on type
