The Only Stig
Hello, I have a 29 gal planted tank with 4 mbuna cichlid. They all eat well, and 3 out of the 4 are around the same size. Go figure that the smallest is getting beat up, a lot. Unfortunately I have lost 2 cichlids already 1 was sick and refused to eat, so he starved, and second one I know was bullied and I believe he was bullied so much he did not come out of his hideout to eat. I am afraid this is going to happen again! I am well aware that cichlid are aggressive fish but is there anything I can do to try help him. The fish getting beat up is obviously the most timid, and the others have chewed most his tail off so it is kind of just a stubby tail. He always hides behind the filter. Is there anything I can do?
