Sometimes the answer is in the library,or the 50 views didn't have an answer. I mean look how many registered users there are on this forum. Some questions are repetitive and sometimes the same post is 2 posts down and already answered. Also depends on where you post too. I think you may have gotten a quicker response in the illness,health ,and nutrition section.jmlp3 said:Well that is not too good, I would suspect that death is imminent. The gill plate is there to protect the gills, and since it is a very important function, it is now exposed, it is certainly not a good thing. I would suggest taking it out and giving it a decent death by putting it in a bag of ice and water, death will be instant but painless.
I knowticed that there were about 50 reads on your topic, and not one reply, wonder whats up with this forum, some people get all kinds of replies and other do not.
Well I know this was not the answer you were looking for but that is what I would do.
GTZ said:What else is in the tank?
i suspect the culprit is yellow lab mbuna or red shoulder peacock.
1) my yellow lab is aggressive to all fish in my tank. super dominant king from the start!
2) next my red shoulder peacock grows very fast and recently is becoming very aggressive to my victorian zebra obliquens
3) zebra obliquens is a mellow guy.
4) syndonits catfish do not meddle with other fishes in my tank.
i read that bichardi is a nasty fellow but seems like it is no match for malawi?
i have taken it out in a hospital tank and now seems ok and eating as usual.
thanks for advice
