I seriously doubt its the food. Fish food has a long shelf life, and even if it was expired, it still wouldn't cause hole-in-the head. Besides, my convict absolutely loves Hikari!

Bad food would not cause HITH. I would check your Nitrate level and do a large water change. Keep the water very clean

Food can definately go bad! As a matter of fact you should only keep out what is used in a two week period. The longer food sits unrefrigerated the more it looses it's nutrition.
