bullies

my fish, especially "general blue" seem to be ganging up on my sunshine, he might be the red jake idk, anyway at times they seem to be in a group, looking for him w big blue meanie out in front, what should I do. mHe seems really stressed. I don't have a qt tank, should I get one before too late? I made more hiding places after water change today. Blue just chases em all out of all of em..

he's been hanging toward the top or chilling on a rock sometimes. I'm afraid he's sick n that's why they're messing with him. Yesterday was bad, like full on mouth fighting n flipping around =(

You should buy a marina hang on breeding box for the bully... just keep him in there for a whole day to get that dominant mentality out of his head

ty, sounds like that's worth a shot, blue has this big set up in the corner, I made a smaller one n he won't let anyone in that one either. They're doing it again as I post gangin up on him. My red empress is slightly bigger than some of my guys that have started to color, such as the hiding sunshine. If it's female could that be part of my prob? (Empress has black marking head to tail)

the bully is one of the biggest too around 3 in. I think, but I was referring to one of the bigger haps not showing color yet, thought maybe it could be female which might cause more fighting, but I heard it takes haps a little longer to color up so idk anyway, they are african. I have 2 haps, 5 peacocks and a yellow lab (mbuna) I am going to rearrange the whole tank here in a few. We also picked up a 10 gallon, time out tank =) to start cycling

A 10 gallon is probably to much... I use a marina breeding box... the large size as a time out tank.. go on Amazon and check then out, they are about $13... do you know how the box works ? It cycles itself with the same water as the tank that it is hanging on..
