Hi, I have a jewelled cichlid, that stays still mid water angled up, rear fin not fanned out. He has done this since I got him about 4 to 5 months ago. Noticed his stomach is starting to concave. I am not sure what is wrong or how to help him. I have a second jewelled. He is vibrant and swimming around happily. Any help would be great.

My guess is that the one that is "vibrant and swimming around happily" is bullying the one that is not.

My Jewel does the exact same thing but his stomach isn't concave as he eats more than any other fish I have ever owned. Like your fish, my "angled up" Jewel is in a tank with an aggressive and much bigger female convict so as the other responder said, it could be a submissive posture for jewels.
