Damn...you can never predict what will happen with your Ps...i have 9 Caribas and 1 of them was attacked today after they ate about 30 small feeders, water parameters and temp. where right, have enough room... they've been together and doing fine for months but now the victim was one of the smallest (maybe my favourite)...he is fine but very scared (once bitten twice shy)...he lost a big part of his tail but i know it will heal within a couple of weeks (you know about their amazing healing capacity)...i decided not separate him (maybe i'm risking his life) since i don't want to get into their problems...i believe he should solve it by himself, that's the way i understand their nature...time will tell...!

I'm so angry...first time it happens to me after many years collecting Ps...my Caribas always fight due to their very aggressive but natural territorial behavior but it's the first time i see a major wound...the worst thing is i don't know who is the aggressor and will never know...damn!

Good luck with them. I guess if you didnt decide to seperate, the wound cant be that bad.

Keep us posted.

I feel your pain. I lost a red that very same way (damage was a lot more severe), It was funny in a way because I was actually mad at the rest of the shoal. I gave them dirty looks.

If it is a major bite to the tail like you said, it might heal but it may not grow back that portion of the tail that was bit off.
