 I  have  a  largely  Cichlid  tank  to  which  I  introduced  4  yellow  cichlids  and  some  blue  dolphins  about  2  weeks  back.
 
 The  feed  is  largely  flakes  and  pellets  and  within  2-3  minutes  these  are  gobbled  up.
 
 Since  the  last  2  days,  one  of  the  Yellow  Cichlid  is  not  eating  anything  and  is  found  hovering  at  the  bottom
 in  the  sand,  in  some  corner  behind  sponge  filter  or  under  some  plants.  It  is  refusing  to  come  out.
 
 Would  appreciate,  if  someone  could  give  the  solution  to  this  problem  as  I  fear  I  might  lose  this  one.
 
 Best  Regards,
 K  Ram

 seperate  it  to  a  different  tank  or  create  a  partition  in  your  current  tank  so  that  no  other  fish  disturbs  it,  it  should  recover  in  a  while,  check  for  its  feces  ,  is  it  white  in  colour??  a  pic  of  the  fish  would  be  really  helpful

 Zakk,  Djay,  MM....
 
 Thanks  for  your  feedback.  I  regret  to  inform  you  that  just  a  while  back,  I  lost  this  one.   Crying or Very sad  
 There  are  three  others  of  the  same  kind,  doing  quite  well  in  the  tank  (  it's  a  6  footer).
 
 In  any  case,  here  is  a  url  for  '  Yellow  Cichlid  '  -  as  requested.

 Yellow  lab  do  not  seem  to  do  well  in  small  numbers.  The  bullying  is  very  much  present.
 Having  a  larger  numbers  and  many  hiding  places  seem  to  help.

 Sandeep,  Hrishi..
 
 Thanks  for  the  inputs  on  my  issue  with  the  yellow  cichlid.
 
 In  my  6  footer  tank,  I  have  around  25  fish,  out  of  which  now  there  are  three  of  these  yellow  ones.
 Do  you  feel,  I  should  increase  these  numbers  to  resolve  the  problem  ?
 
 I  have  some  driftwoods  which  gives  them  sufficient  place  to  hide.
 Think  I  should  add  some  rocks  too  ?
 
 Regards,
 K  Ram

 If  they  are  getting  harrased  by  the  other  cichlids,  better  increase  their  numbers.Adding  driftwoods  in  a  such  a  tank  is  not  really  advisable,due  to  the  fact  that  they  would  make  the  water  acidic.Your  idea  of  adding  rocks  is  a  good  one.Make  sure  you  create  enough  hiding  spaces.Posting  a  picture  of  your  tank  would  definetely  help.

 Ram,  
 
 Depends  on  what  are  the  other  cichlids  you  have  in  that  tank.  Yellow  labs  are  much  less  aggressive  when  compared  to  other  cichlids  and  will  be  prone  to  be  intimidated.  Auratus,  Orange  Morphs  are  something  which  are  more  notorious

 In  addition  to  yellow  labs  and  blue  dolphin,  what  other  cichlids  do  you  have  in  the  tank.
 The  picture  is  not  visible  at  my  comp  due  to  firewall  issues.
 Driftwoods  are  not  added  in  Lake  Malawi  tanks,  rocks  are  a  beter  option.
 This  was  one  of  my  setups.

 Sandeep,
 
 Thanks  for  the  feedback.
 
 Well  my  tank  has  the  following  species:
 
 2  Black  Angels
 4  Severums
 4  Blue  Dolphins
 6  Tiger  Barbs
 3  Silver  Dollars
 2  Firemouth
 3  Yellow  Lab
 1  Red  tailed  Shark
 
 Feeding  -  Spirulina  flakes  and  Pellets  -  for  Cichlids
 
 Substrate  is  Golden  sand  (fine  type)
 
 Plants  are  all  -  artificial
 
 No  rocks  -  but  2  large  driftwoods.
 
 Filteration  -  Eheim  2217  -  continuous
 
 2  aerators  -  continuous
 
 30%  water  changed  monthly  
 
 About  a  year  now  -  no  major  issues  except  the  recent  casualty.
 
 Could  it  be  due  to  something  that  could  have  gone  into
 the  Yellow  Labs  guts  -  accidentally  -  something  it  could  not  digest  ?
 
 Regards,
 K  Ram

 Bro,  you  have  the  wrong  combination  of  fishes  in  the  first  instance.Severums,dolphins,firemouths  and  labs  are  uncompatible  with  each  other.They  would  obviously  pick  on  each  other,wont  they?
 You  have  a  fairly  large  tank  to  house  them.Apart  from  this  uncompatibility  factor,  i  dont  find  anything  else  wrong  with  your  tank.

 Hrishi,
 
 Yes,  that  could  be  -  but  it's  like  the  'Mumbai  Local  Train'  -  no  one  is  compatible,  but  they  adjust  in  this  '  Zindagi  Ka  Safar'   Smile  
 
 As  mentioned  in  my  earlier  post  -  been  a  year  -  no  issues  -  except  the  recent  casualty.  The  other  three  yellow  labs  are  doing  just  fine.
 
 regards,
 K  Ram
