Will goldfish eat other goldfish?

Home More advice Pets & Animals

The boys I take care of had 2 pet goldfish, and while they were on a weekend away, one of the goldfish died. When they came back, instead of having a goldfish floating on the top of the water, they had bits of carcass through the bowl. There is no filter in the tank, so the only explanation seems to be that the other goldfish started eating the dead one. Is this common?
