My jack dempsey is spinning in circles like if he was a dog he be rolling over. He is also digging his head into the sand in the tank while rolling. Now I just had a stacked cave rock fall down could it have hurt him? I don’t know what to do he doesn’t have any physical damage I can see and he never did this before

have you tested your water parameters? Does his stomach appear bloated? Is he a regular JD or an Electric Blue?
Haven’t tested the water I will have to tonight, he is a regular jack dempsey, he isn’t bloated

Temp? What type of heater do you have? Is it a COBALT? Did the temp go up unexpectedly?
