OK, I am doing a nono keeping a goldfish in a community tank, but I lost 4 of 5 goldies and I didn't want more goldfish so I put in a few others.
I had 5 lemon tetras (small ones) and now after 4 days, I am down to 2. the keyhole cichlids are way too small to eat the tetras so completely. the only other thing I can think of is the goldfish had a few snacks.

I was told in a shop that the goldfish would be OK in this tank.(water at 23 c)..
any thoughts?

If the goldfish could get them in its mouth, then it could have eaten them.

Well, I'm getting rid of the GF so it won't be an issue as of tomorrow morning.

I just dindt know if a Goldfish would go after other fish.

Cheers,

Goldfish are like big babies, they don't know what something is unless they put it in their mouth.
