Cichlid can't open its mouth fully!
 
I noticed about 2 weeks ago one of my chiclids could not open it's mouth to eat properly. I started feeding him small pellets that were easier for him to eat. He's still able to get a few larger pellets down but he works very hard at it. It looks as if his mouth is a bit sideways, perhaps maybe from a lip lock fight with another fish. Question is will he ever beable to open his mouth properly and is there anything i can do to help him. He's still very active, still very interested in food, colors are great fins are fine. Any information would be helpful thank you.

Welcome to the forum first of all.

Can you perhaps post a picture at all?
