Ive recently come into a Cichlid that appeared in my room (A random gift from friends) ive taken care of fish before but never a fish this big (4-inch-5inch long) and also this moody... I know they are territorial fish, but some odd behaviors came along with it. It found its home in one of my vases in the tank and started to dig trenches around it, I covered it up once and it dug it again, another feature of the fish is that it always hides from me and usually never likes to show its face when im around. The PH and water temperature is normal, so is it just scared of me? There is plenty of hiding spaces in the tank, and I also added 2 mystery snails to the tank also to get other life in the tank. Forgot t mention the tank is also 10 gallons. Ive have also never seen my fish eat, the food goes in, and it never touches it. The food is the same food the previous owner used. Any advice for taking care of this fish?
