Glad to hear of your success but keep in mind that good tank hygiene and maintanence may have prevented this from happening in the first place. Cichlids, especially larger ones, create a dirtier environment than smaller fish so their tanks should be cleaned more often and their filters should be slightly oversized as well.
Just something to think about
