    I would not feed malawi's meat sticks, what size is your tank and how many malawis are in there, are they haps or mnunba, what type of filitration do you have? how often are your water changes and how much do you do? I know these seem like a lot of questions, but all important to know exactly how we can help. The reason I would not feed meat sticks, is because they are mostly herbivore, Meat sticks once in a blue moon, but only as a treat? We will be able to help you effectiviely, if given all the information we need. Thanks

    looks like a bacterial infection to me, I would not do to much just yet, see what some of the other members think. However I think you are a bit overstocked for 44 gallons, most 44 gallons are either corner tanks or bow fronts, corner tanks have very little surface area, however there are people who are told to overstock there mnumba tanks to cut down on aggression. Is there anything else in your tanks besides the malawis, no bottom feeders. I think I would try doing at least 2 weekly water changes, maybe 20 percent each time, cichlids are well known for being messy fish and attention has to be paid to water quality.

    Thanks, I have her in tank by herself right now. The other fish seem to be fine for now. I don't have any bottom feeders in that tank. I give the gravel a really good cleaning every week. It is a corner tank.
