Again with my GT ... Anyway, my GT has stopped showing interest in his food. I have been using floating Cichlid pellets which he has gobbled up like a voracious hog since he was about an inch long (he is now about 3.5 inches).
However, I fed him some frozen blood worms the other day and since then, he refuses to eat anything else. He simply ignores the pellets.
He used to gobble up ten of them in no time, now he won't even bother with five unless they get caught in the filter flow and go scooting through the water then he's all happy to chase them and eat them.
The rest of his behavior hasn't changed, he isn't sitting on the gravel doing nothing, he isn't floating on his side, he isn't sitting in one of his caves and never coming out.
He is however showing that strange behavior I mentioned a week ago, clearing a spot on the bottom of the tank and he has that protrusion near his anus again. Is this some sort of breeding behavior or is he sick?
Colors are fine btw.
