One of my electric blue cichlids has turned a ghost white and doesn't eat with the rest of the fish. It's been like this for a few weeks now and I can't seem to figure anything out. The water is fine as all my other fish are very healthy and colorful.
I have two electric blues and both are lacking bright colors but this one white, it was a pretty bad batch of fish I was sent but these two keep on keeping on. Could the other 5 yellows be intimidating these two blues? I thought they'd get along pretty well being both mild cichlids and this now white fish was never the dominant one as it could never have been big enough so it's not like he lost it lost its rank.
Well first "electric blue" is a common name for many mbuna so a scientific name would help. Based on the body shape and the fact that its gray I would guess it is a young fryeri but that is just a guess. The fish looks very stressed so it is hard to tell.
