This doesn't sound right and isn't normal. How is the feeding going now 7days on?

hi guys, i seem to have a problem.. i went away for two nights a few days ago. i fed the fish as per norm before i went, and i noticed the day after i got back one of my females was missing, i've checked everywhere within the tank and even outside the tank and nothing(i know outside, but you never know) so i think she might of died and been eaten(but she was quite large..3 1/2 inch) is this possible in 3 days? and also my wild metriaclima fainzilberi mara rocks seems to acting strange and not eating :(

When you say you've checked in the tank! Have you removed the rocks?

Whatch her for a day or so, if its still no better either treat the tank - or better put the sick fish in a small QT tank and treat with Octozin.

Fish not feeding (especially Malawi) is a sign something is amiss. Has she been picked on / battered at all?

Stress is a bigger problem than we realise in my opinion..
