I am a little puzzled as to why my red empress has secluded himself and no longer shows interest in eating? He has been in my 90g for several months with no issue. I have added several smaller peacocks within the last week and that is when I noticed him lose interest in eating. I lost a VC10 that was doing the same thing the other day. Fed primarily Spirluna flakes with the occasional NLS cichlid pellets. Altogether there are about 30 africans ranging from 2" to 5". No obvious aggression issues. Water changes done weekly. Water tests all within acceptable ranges. Really don't want to lose the empress, but its acting similar to the VC before it died.
