mbuna lying sideways on tank floor :(
my female mbuna acei cichlid just gave birth last night. i scooped her up and put her into another tank with the same water and gravel for her to spit out the remaining fry, and then the next morning i moved her back into my big tank, but now, she is just lying sideways on the floor, occasionally moving her fins. she can swim for a short period of time, but it is definitely not the million miles an hour she is capable of (more like the speed of a gourami) and she was just sitting near the filter. i scooped her up and put her in a convalescent home with an air pump, but i don't think she's going to make it. what happened? is there any last resort i can take?
please read more at my original thread (especially the last few posts by me)
I answered in the other thread.
