So I’ve never seen this before and I found the convict Cichlid with it after doing a water change on the tank, I thought it was poop but it’s red and has some white stuff on it like rotting (so weird). Is there anything I can do or do I have to euthanize the fish? Help would be greatly appreciated! He is acting normal except for this.

I’ll check my water parameters in a few hours after the tank has settled he is a bit more paler he was pinkish, yes he’s completely normal except he is a little more territorial in his corner and a little plump (I don’t think he can poop anymore honestly) but if I didn’t see that red thing I would think he’s a normal fish. I’ve had him for about 2 years ish.

If it's prolapse, not much you can do except keep water and tank fresh and clean. I hope he works it out on his own, but unfortunately I don't know the odds.
