My Green Terror's Sick :(

Same old song.. an infection of some kind has made a comeback (recurs every 6 months).. at first it was just one of the Neon Jewels that was sick.. but now my big Green Terror has got it as well. And this is the first Green Terror i've had that grew this big :(

This guy is atleast 2years old! (as is the Neon jewel now that i think about it).
He had just started to get his forehead hump as well.

Anyway have medicated the tank..

today was the second time i cycled the water in 36hrs(as per instructions).. lets see how it goes.

Would be a shame to lose these guys after so long.

learn more about these Cichlids at the links below
Green Terror
Red Jewel (mine is some kind of mix breed.. hence its not even red.. but a vibrant neon)

And yes i am aware that african and american cichlids don't belong in the same tank. I learnt that recently.. no thanks to the aquarist who happily sold me these fish.

UPDATE(tuesday 28 feb 2012)
the green terror died last night.
