I have lost 2 red eye tetras since I moved my female bristle nose into their 55 gallon aquarium and they weren't sick and there are no bodies, there are guppies, the red eyes, one female albino BN, and one clown pleco. There were 6 red eyes. 5 when I did a water change on Friday and 4 today. I don't normally feed pleco pellets much, they grow a lot of red brush algae, but a fed 2 half pellets tonight to try to save my remaining fish. And I moved my prettiest guppies into corydoras tanks with no Bristlenose... Anyone else see predation from these? (and I think I need to sell my babies to a pet store)

Bristlenoses are omnivores and will defintely scavage on dead fish. But they won't catch living fish and aren't predators (not equipped to do so)

I did not move the tetras in with other tetras, will see what happens, but no skeleton, nothing. I didn't check behind and under the tank
