I recently just started this hobby in january only because my girlfriend gave me a cichlid as a present but have grown to love it. I have it in a aqueon 10 gallon tank kit that that i got from a mom and pop store in town, i did a little research and learned about cycling my water and let it ran 2 days while my cichlid was in a hospitality tank(2.5) and did all the water check properly.

months later(today)

A week ago, i was gone for the weekend and told my girlfriend to feed him and i am positive that she over feed him because he has not been eating properly. When i was feeding him he ate morning and evening, now he wount eat for 2 days atleast. Today before i was leaving to work i noticed a white spot on him so i was getting a little worried, i quickly did a water test and it seemed fine..PLEASE HELPP

When you say your water test was fine, what do you mean? What did you test for and what where the values?

How often and how much water do change?
