Injured electric blue acara


Recommended Posts

Hi all. After cleaning my tank this morning I noticed that one of my EBA has a pretty significant injury to his mouth. Not sure if is a result of aggression from the Rainbow Cichlids or the other EBA or if he smashed it on something in the tank.

I am not sure if I should just let him try and recover or move him to a qt tank.

I added a little extra salt after my water change but not sure what else I should do. Appreciate any advice.

Sorry for him…

Typically, aggression shows up between con-specific species, especially between males once they reach spawning age.

I have _sometimes_ seen male EBAs spar, but the Rainbow Cichlid may not work with EBAs going forward.

I remember when our Threadfin Acaras decided to destroy one another overnight.
