You have to stop feeding them bloodworms. Your mbunas are liable to get bloat if you continue to do so. Use foods that contain less protein content.

lupin is right, and the reason ur mbunas didnt get sick right away is because a parasite had not delvoped yet, and now one has, it is feeding off the undigested food inside your fish!

electric yellow may have a bit of brine shrimp once and a while but bloodworms should be avoided.

electric yellow

Hi guys,
Thanks so much for all your advise. I'm stopping right now.The yellow hasn't had food for about 4 - 5days should I return him back to the main tank?

Just a precaution, I'd let it stay isolated for a few more weeks.

Are you doing regular water changes? Because if not it could be the problem.
