View Full Version : chaser fish

hello all. I have 10 african cichlids in a 55 gallon tank. non bigger than 2 inches. I have a red jewel in it that is getting tormented and his tail is getting nipped off. I was wondering what a good chaser/distractor fish would be. My PH is at 8.0. I would prefer something with some color to it not just an average tetra or something that's just silver. Any suggestion's? thank's everyone.

If you have 15 fish in the tank now you have enough already and actually too many. All these fish still have growing to do. You will most likely have to get rid of the tormented or the tormentor. Have you 2 F's to 1 Male per species? That helps as does lots and lots of hiding spaces.
