He told us that they were flying foxes, and that with it being a 50 tall that they would primarily stay near the bottom and on the rock that we have in the tank.

the wounds are normally vertical and about 1/4 of an inch long.

we are not on day 7 of no issues with the fish. So I am not sure what it was, but if it happens I will yank out those flying chinese foxy algae eaters and see what happens.

thanks for the suggestion
Do you have pics of these "flying foxes" and "salvini cichlids"? What gouramis do you have? Paradise fish are also nasty fish. I would never trust a local fish store to stock a tank for you.

the problem is long gone.

the problem was the "flyng foxes" they ended up being siamese algae eaters. Got them out and the problem disappeared....i don't have a salvini, i have a pair of apisto's...my bad, they were similar colors and being new i got them mixed up.

as stated later on the paradise was the first one to get attacked.....eventually the other paridise was taken out.

I have totally changed my tank now because i didn't like the makeup....seemed too thrown together and a few of the fish were going to be too big for the tank eventually. So needless to say I haven't gone back to the lfs anymore.

They have a great reputation in the STL area though, and maybe i just got a ****ty employee that didn't know what they were talking about.

I have a moonlight, a pearl and an opaline.....all are females and get along great.

now i have the 3 gouramis, 7 serpetae, 3 yo yo loaches 2 grudgeons, 2 rams, 2 apistos, green sevreum and a gold severum, and a golden wonder killi.

I want a couple of different killi's but the non-annual ones are very hard to find in STL.
