Hello, I have had my cichlids for maby 4 months and doing fine every once and awhile there is aggresion but nothing serious. I have noticed that my bumblebee isn't growing too much he is about the same age as the rest but now is the smallest in the tank. he gets plenty of food and doesn't seem supper skinny but is skinny. any one know why? thanks for the help everyone.

Maybe they're just like people? Does he otherwise appear healthy?

how many fish are in this tank ? it could be just stressed a bit. 30 gallon is too small for african cichlids, they need room to make territories. bumblebee cichlids can get to a desent size for mbuna, i've got one in my 55 gallon and he's just over 7 inch nose to tail.

it could be then it's a "runt" or just not growing as fast as the others.

Otherwise I'd think it has a tape worm.
