    We have a 75 gallon fish tank. A few days ago I noticed a silverdollar was missing. I turned everything in the tank upside down... no fish. I looked on the floor around the tank (it has a canopy but one end is open in the back)... no fish. Now we smell the fish and let me tell you, it STINKS! We have looked everywhere and I do mean everywhere. We even looked under the couch which is about ten feet away. The only part it could have jumped out faces into the dining room and no smell in there. It is in the living room. Any ideas to kill the smell? Trust me when I say we have searched. This is WEIRD! It does not help that I am fighting a stomach bug. BLECH!!

    The filter has a cover and no way for it to get in through the part where the water goes in. It has just little slits. [​IMG]

    What about where the water spills out at the top? We had a chiclid go missing and ended up finding it up behind the filter media where the spillway comes out.

    I feel for you. Nothing worse than stinky dead fish smell. [​IMG]

    Not in the bio wheels. Something is going on with the tank too... had two fish die today. Will have to do a water change asap. [​IMG] It is an old established tank so no clue what is going on.

    No air vent and I have searched the tank form one end to the other on the inside and outside. It had to have flopped somewhere really weird and far far away.
