been keeping my malawi's for about 2 months now all has been ok, I check them and the water regularly. Anyway i have two ice blue red top's one has grown more than the other and the smaller one sems a bill poorly, noticed him tonight swimming with his body not quite upright and seems to be going near the top of the tank on his/her own. He looks fine not spots/redness but just seems a bit quiet and not swimming much. I did put a food pellet over him and his flew up got it and swam ino a corner and ate it avoiding others on his way down. Maybe i am being paranoid bug any suggestions?

Did these fish go through the cycle?

What size tank is this?

What are the other inhabitants?

What are the water parameters?

What is your normal tank maintenance routine?

It sounds as if he may be stressed from aggression. Keeping two males of one species is another good indicator that this is what is going on.
