| || | Re-Introducing a Cichlid Back Into a Tank
OK, so i got 3 cichlids, a convict, an oscar, and a jack dempsey. The convict used to ram the oscar and the dempsey, to the point where they would hide out in the corners of the tank. The two fish wouldn't each much and the convict would hog all the food. I took the convict out for this reason, and put him into another tank. Now the dempsey and the oscar do OK together, but I just re-introduced the convict back to the tank, after about a month. The tables have turned and the dempsey and oscar are having their revenge. The convict now hides in the corner of the tank just like they used too. I was hoping that they would all just get along for the most part, but the same scenario happened, just with the dominance switched around. Is it possible to get them all in harmony in the same tank?
Look at my aquariums for a picture of the tank (without the convict).
