New Mystery Fish?

Greetings to all..

I'm a new member, just signed up, can't believe it hasn't happened sooner.

In addition to pet stores, I stumbled across Craigslist as another source for all things fish..

About two months ago I came across a 90 gallon setup which was nice, but let go.. Could hardly see the fish inside..

It's in my basement now, clean, but I'm down to 1 fish, 2 others were so taken over by various infections that, we'll they didn't make it.. But this last one is also quite skittish, and slowly recovering.. It was the bully of the bunch, and honestly I don't even know what type of cichlids it is? Maybe a Texas cichlid?

My recovering patient is a 7-8 inches in length.. And for whatever reason will not eat while I'm around.. Must be eating something?

It had fin rot, scales infested with fungus.. Which all seem to be better.

The eating concerns me, and its belly is all sucked up.. Any ideas?

Any help would be appreciated, even though this guy was a bully and beat up on the others, I would still like to save it..

Best wishes, and thankyou in advance for any help or advice..

Cepuras :)

I'm sorry for the double post, but this made me laugh way harder than I should have.

Cepuras, that looks like a Black Belt cichlid. South American cichlid, usually docile but if you get a male that may be the reason why he was a bully.



If the big fellow is eating but not gaining weight and he has no outward signs of illness like ulcers on his body, he could have parasites. Treat him with API General Cure for internal parasites.

If, after parasite treatment, he still is not getting better then there's a possibility he has a very dreaded disease called mycobacteriosis. If the tank was kept in pretty poor conditions before you got it, that would explain things. :/
