What happened to my blood fin tetra????

I woke up this morning, went to feed my fish, was watching them eat and be happy when I noticed my school was missing a tetra! Then I found the little guy in the corner, and his entire top lip was gone! It was so sad! He was sitting in the corner just gasping. What could have happened???

We need more information about the tank such as inhabitants and size to really draw any conclusions.

It's entirely possible the other bloodfins had a go at him or the dwarf gourami. One way you can make sure the bloodfins don't squabble as much is to up their shoal to at least 7. They can get a little nippy where there aren't enough bloodfins around.

Those are all peaceful fish, if they did pick on him i wonder if they sinced something was wrong with him. What kind of objects do you have in the tank with them?
