The Décor in the tank is a fake holy rock from universal rock. I don't think that is the issue in this case as the issue is spreading slowly. My water changes are at 50%. I am using an aqua clear hang on the back filer and currently there is just a sponge all other media is pulled out so it is not blocking the salt and Pimafix. I will update on Thursday when I am back in front of my tank.

Salt and more Salt - also question is that coral in the tank or holy rock - is there any chance he is cutting himself by smashing into the rocks.

Also when you are doing these water changes are you changing at lease 15 gallons or 50%.

What kind of filter are you using, are you using charcoal?

ChefJimmy,

This male only has one female with him in a 29 Gallon tank. The other two females I had with him were pregnant and in separate tanks. They are doing fine with no signs of damage. The PH is at 7.8 and the other readings are at zero. I have been doing a water change every three days but will give your advice a try.

the standard questions. what are the tank mates, what are the paramaters, and please don't say perfect. what size tank.

id say start with massive water changes, and add some salt slowly. here is where someonw will say that s too much, but i usually do a couple cups in a 55.

Hi,

I am fairly new to Cichlid keeping and my Rubescens is having an issue that seems to be getting worse. it seems his scales are being eaten. I am using Melafix and Pimafix but he is seems to be getting worse. He is still eating.
Any help you can give me would be appreciated. He is in a hospital tank right now. Thank you
