My female Convict Cichlid is beaten up *please help*

Recommended Posts

hi, my convict cichlids hade fry. they were free swimming about 3 weeks ago and now i can't see them (i think there all dead) :cry: and my female convict is all beaten up and now has no back fin. :cry: my male seems to be chasing her and biting her. there are both by themselves in a 68L tank. i have now moved my female into a fry saver in the same tank and wanted to know how long before i can release the female from the fry saver and how long before they can start to breed again.

cheers,john :cry::cry:

its not unusual for the male to beat the crap out of the female after breeding , he is up for more action but she wants to look after the fry so he gets cranky lol

keep your water clean and maybe add some melafix to help her fins heal a bit quicker and she should be good
