Question Agressive Convicts

hey guys I have a 55 gallon south American Cichlid tank with Two convicts and Oscar fish and the One convict is being very aggressive and is attacking my Oscars and other convict when they travel past his log, is there anything i can do to eliminate this aggressiveness or should i just remove the aggressive fish.(I think i have two female convicts so could this be the problem?)

Hi I'm a Goldfish I have a 3 second memory span... hi I'm a Goldfish I have a three second memory span.... Gotta love my sister:)

1-55 gallon Cichlid tank,

1-1 1/2 gallon Betta bowl,

1- 5.5 gallon Pac-Man frog tank,

Soon to be 1-20 gallon reptile tank,

1-Britney spaniel/family dog,

used to own 1-painted turtle, 1-wild hermit crab RIP,2 Guinea pigs RIP.

I would suggest you have too many fish (of the wrong sort) in a 55g. Check the profiles of both species, click the shaded names: Oscar and Convict Cichlid. One oscar in a75g is suggested, and convicts are not community fish except in very large tanks. Things will probably worsen until one fish is left alive.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
