I have a 2" firemouth cichlid in a 55 gallon tank all by himself, and whenever I turn on the lights, he just sits vertical on the ground motionless, but when I turn off the lights he is normal. is this bad? or should I overlook it?
Looking straight up? And then swims around? How long have you had it and does it eat and all normally?
ya it eats it just hates the lights. ive had it for a year now
Firemouths do better in groups. Adding 3x more of them will likely encourage activity.
