hello... i have had my jack dempsey for about two months now. He normally chases around the 2 blood parrots that i have in my tank. I have noticed that this past week he has started to kind of lay on his side and do these little flips. He doesn't look unhealthy at all I just didnt know if this is normal behavior for this type of fish?? Thanks

Doesn't sound normal at all. What are your water readings?

I've got a Jack in with a PArrot and have no chasing issues.

Sounds like he is suffering from ammonia. What are your water chemistry readings? Do you test the water? If so can you post your results? Maybe we can help you better if you do this.Thank you. I hope the little guy is alright
