The mysterious case of the disappearing fish

Another gruesome little tale from the Aquarium of Death.

I turned on the aquarium light early one morning last week and noticed there was a dead one floating at the top. These things happen. It must have died sometime in the night because it had already been about half eaten by its tank mates. So I yelled for Dave to come look (as you do) and then I hopped in the car to drop Dave off at the T station (ten minute round trip in the car, but a 15 minute walk, and at temperatures below freezing like they have been all week, it's just not that big a deal to take ten minutes out of my morning at 7 am to drop him off.) Lengthy backstory aside, what I'm trying to get across to you is that ten minutes elapsed, tops, between when I first noticed the deader and when I got back from dropping Dave off.

The fish had disappeared. I don't know if the other fish in the tank had a feeding frenzy or if they are always such efficient little cannibals (maybe it only died ten minutes before I noticed the body) or if they stashed the body somewhere in the fake plants to eat later like a lion with a gazelle carcass, but maybe I'm just not meant to be privy to all the secrets of the Tank of Doom.

Needless to say, they didn't get fed that day.
