Convict reclusive

Postby ariel97 » Sat Jun 09, 2012 12:03 pm

My convict changed its behavior after a tankmate [old cichlid] died. It was a big Texas Cichlid, I had to euthanize. There was a peppered cory in the tank and that's all. After a week or so, I rearranged tank for smaller new fish, but the Convict has remained reclusive, under a rock. I have a small Texas Cichlid and small JD in there now. They are fine, although the JD is quiet, the Tex has already dominated tank even though it is 1 inch long. What'sup w/ Convict, any ideas?

no medicine works better than clean water.
no such thing as too much clean water, so go do a water change now.
