So, I pulled him out, put him in a small 2 gallon octogan tank, and tossed in an antibiotic. He seems to be fine, but once his tail grows back should I just keep him in the small tank? If I put him back in the 30 they might end up killing him.......
I would try and find new home for the fish in something larger than 2 gal.
Is doubtful the other's will leave him /her be should you return the fish to the 30 gal.
In larger tank ,they might but six cichlid's in 30 gal is a bit tight considering territorial need's of the species.
