How Carnivorous??

Hi

We have a weather loach in a coldwater tank with a few other goldfish and some cloud minnows. Our previous collection of minnows disappeared, but we put that down to age (they had been there some time)... but now we have introduced 7 from another tank (abandoned bathroom tank project) and one has disappeared... I also notice a small oranda has been chewed up and just a tail and small body section remains... is this the loach eating them?? We have been regularly feeding flakes and bloodworm, usually when its dark so he doesnt miss out, so if hes just greedy I might have to find another home for him!
