So this fish was acting normal all day. During the last feeding it refused to eat and I noticed something strange on its bottom side. What can it be? We have had this mixed African cichlid tank since February. I do weekly water changes and there never seems to be a problem with water parameters. Thanks in advance for your help.

So has anything changed since you posted? Does it swim up to food and just not take it in or does it take it in and then spit it out? If it is the former I would guess that your fish is holding eggs and what you see in the photo is the breeding vent tube. Does the fish seem to juggle something around in her mouth periodically? Is there a slight unusual bulge just behind the mouth? If it eats and spits out the food, I'd guess bloat.

Just wanted to get the ball rolling on your post.
