Hi All. I have a 30 g. Tank of South American Ciclads.

My tank consists of Parrot Ciclad, Red hump Eartheater ciclad, pleco, Green Terror Ciclad, and a red devilcilad.

I just lost my Keyhole ciclad and black tail shark to a fish attack. I am not sure wich of the fish caused it. As I have never witnessed any fish ripping apart the others. However, I do need a solution.... any advice is greatly appreciated.

Hi! :)

As mentioned above, you're probably having a lot of aggression because most of your fish are probably growing too large for a 30 gallon. Cichlids are often quite territorial and it's harder to keep them in their own territories with so little space. It's ok tho, that's how the MTS (Multiple Tank Syndrome) starts for a lot of people and you'll fit right in!!
