    Help I can't figure it out.......for the last two weeks I leave work on a Saturday return Monday and I am short a fish. Can the CUC dispose of the bodies that fast? I left 7:00 pm Saturday and came back in to check Sunday at 2:00 pm and the Midas Blenny was gone I wanted the yellow color but not the $ loss I picked him up from the LFS along with my urchin which is loving the tank and is way cool. I am out of ideas. :frustrat:

    If a fish dies the CUC can have it completely cleaned up within hours.

    The CUC along with the bristle worms will take care of a dead fish pretty quick.
    Are you 100% sure that you dont have a predator in your tank?

    Do you have a cat that could have gotten it if it jumped. I found a peppermint shrimp in the kitchen this morning. Cat carried it there but wasn't interested in eating it, I guess.
