"I have a Red Shoulder African Cichlid that is exhibiting many weird signs and I can not figure out what is wrong with him, other tank mates are unaffected. One day he was acting completely normal and fine, the next he was no longer swimming around and sitting on the bottom grasping for air. He would sway side to side and often begin to float upside down . The next day I noticed that his head seemed to be swollen with a slight greyish black color on parts of the area. He began to swim fine at times but others he floats inverted and just coasts around. Then yesterday he had about a 1.5' white 'string' hanging where his excrement usually comes out. I have contemplated taking him out many times but at times he still appears to exhibit signs of recovery. Please help"
