hey guys, i've got a pair of breeding convict cichlids that i've had for more than a year. they've been fine until recently i noticed that the male has "siezures", yup.. he'll be fine and swimming normally and then all of a sudden, he basically has a siezure.. starts flopping around everywhere and banging himself into glass,gravel,everything..and lays on his side for a while, then afterwards, he'll regain his strength and be fine again until the next siezure,

has anyone seen this happen with fish? cuz i feel bad for the little guy, he's banging himself to death each time. :sad:

nope.. very sure its not freightened.. it basically has a siezure just like humans do.. twitching.. banging.. and the female actually tries to protect him from banging himself against the glass. when he gets his siezures, he's upside down, sideways, everyway imaginable.. darn... i think he's gonna croak soon.

I had the same with an Arrow a few yrs back. Just started convolsing.. darting to each side of the tank uncontrollably. Next thing you know, floated downwards, head first.

don't ever feed any fish expected to be ill to your piranhas - such a bad idea
