My son's Sick Cichlid

Recommended Posts

Guest Dale

Like the other writer, I am caring for my son's fish while he is in college. The Jack Dempsey cichlid he loves has the poor taste to be looking quite sick three days before my son returns...and I'm clueless. Please help!


The fish is lying on its side on the bottom of the tank, breathing and occasionally moving his tail and eyes around. He does not "right" himself. There is some redness at the base of his side fin. The temperature is okay according to the two thermometers and the feeding hasn't changed in the 4-5 months I have been caring for him. Any help? Please respond soon....
