aggression

Generally my cichlids chased each other around but never really did damage to one another. If the fish in my tank are suddenly targeting my male peacock (of course the most expensive fish in my tank) do they generally get over themselves? I will remove the fish to a hospital tank but he is beat up now with ripped up fins and just stressed. Can I reintroduce him after I nurse him back to health? I have all Malawi cichlids, about 14 in a 55 Gallon tank. A couple adults and some juveniles. The peacock is pretty big and it amazes me that they pick on him. Thanks for the help. Dee

It is difficult to reintroduce a fish in a tank where cichlids have already established territories. It would be a good idea to rearrange all decorations possible before you introduce the peacock.
