I agree with the other recommendations to remove that fish carefully. I would also recommend that you do not keep any type of fish that can fit in his mouth. The best tank mates for frontosa are more frontosa.

This happened to me yesterday with my Jack Dempsey! I gave it about 8 hrs to handle on his own...don't do that! I removed the Ram with tweezers, fully intact. It wasn't going to happen on it own.
They've been in the same tank for a year...never had a problem.

Think someone needs to make a post about not keeping Rams in with predatory cichlids more than 2.5 times their size. These fish aren't even close in terms of temperament regardless of the huge size difference. And I couldn't pick two fish with more different water parameters than a Ram and Frontosa. Smh

This is a joke, right? :eek:
And well, it seems these sorts of things apparently NEVER get old....

A Frontosa with a Blue Ram stuck in it's mmouth is one thing.
But no... the tweezers or even needle nose pliers just ain't happening for something like that.
Nope.
