HELP! Convict cichlid issues

Postby Majestic » Fri Sep 13, 2019 5:58 am

Hi this is my first post so please be kind if I ask stupid questions, iv only had fish for about 6 weeks, a friend helped me set up a 100litre tank and gave me 6 baby convicts, she thought they were all boys... I also Hav a yabbie in there, three big and three small convicts, all from the same “litter”? Lol born at the same time or whatever. Turns out at least one is a girl, coz two of them paired up and had babies. Lots and lots of tiny babies. The parents Hav the other 4 fish and the yabbie cowering in the corner of the tank, I noticed one of the smaller ones has had its lips pretty much chewed right off so yesterday I put in a very big breeding net/box thing to protect the 4 fish getting belted and popped them in there just till the babies are a little bigger and the parents chill out or at least till the one has grown its lips back

Agresion is not going to stop, you may need to separate them into their own tank
