    I reintroduced my fish back into dt after qt and they are much happier and feeding my only issue is before qt, my cardinals had babies and now that they are back in the dt the one cardinal is very shy and permanantly hiding but is coming out to eat. This morning i saw the other cardinal chasing the shy one all over the tank until it managed to hide again, your thoughts on this guy's? Is this normal.

    Probably re-establishing the bond etc, it will take some time for them to settled down

    @dallasg thanks i hope so but this morning the chasing started again and all her fins are ragged like he has been biting her FINS so i took her out and put the cardinal in my sump where i will keep her until she is 100% assuming it's the female, how can i treat her so that her fins and tail come right again.

    Something similar happened with mine....I have three bangai's in my tank. one got rejected by the other and they chaced him and nipped its fins untill he got his own little space in the tank. All I did was feeding him....his fins grew back very quickly.

    just keep her well fed and provide a place to hide, they will grow back in a few days

    Thanks guys will do. How long should i keep her in the sump before i reintroduce back into the dt. Hopefully he would have calmed down by then.
