Diagnosing fish ailments is very difficult, but before we can attempt this we need to know more about the aquarium. Tank size, fish, decor, how long has the tank been running, and how long have yo had this cichlid, water parameters (GH, pH, temp), results of tests for amonia, nitrite, nitrate, etc.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
