Hello, I'm new here at Cichlid Forums. I would like to know what actions I should do for my convict cichlid pair. They won't eat the food I give them instead they'll continue swimming together at the rocks then they'll hide in my plants and inside the cave they made. Can anyone give me an advice or a hint on what they're going through, thanks! :)

Take it slow. Do they have fry in the cave? Sounds like mating behavior.

Have they eaten the food before?

Sounds like the have fry or eggs in the tank somewhere. Feed them, but not so much that it goes into the filter.

I can't tell if they started laying the eggs somewhere, they totally messed my tank set up trying to make their own style huh? They started eating again but only at a minimum.
