I know alot about fish but there is one section that i have yet to touch on-cichlids. I know they range in size and color and that they tend to be agressive. My little brother(11) has had a 55gal tank for 3 years now and i have always been concerned about the fish he has in it. I do not live with him(i live with my mom) so i cant always watch what he does with it. He has had the fallowing fish in it for a year now and i know they dont belong. 1 female blue johanni, 1 male kennyi,1white convict and one blood parrot. The fishes conditions are as fallows.
Johanni- the only fish that doesnt care about the kennyi, it like to burriw out caves.
Kennyi- rules the tank with an iron fin
convict- is not fond of the kennyi and is constantly bullied. He lost his tail before but i heal him up.(fin rot)
Parrot- Bad shape. He had finrot(fixed),A hole in his side(curdesy of a green terror my brother had added, i returned it), It currently has sever amonia burns on its fins and a white scar from the GT. It always hide in the cornner and floats head down(swimbladder?).
Like i said, i have zero experience with these fish. I have add some more caves and plants to break up territories. The kenyyi now has its half and the others have theirs. The parrot comes out of his corrner and hangs with the convict. My sibling is what would be said "spoiled" he got the tank after begging/crying and has no intrest in it or the fish. None of my family does, they wont let me return the fish or buy more to help it either. They think its just fine.Ignorence is bliss. If i cant return anything then how can i atleast make it more comfertable for them.
