One of my cichlids has been hiding in the rocks lately and not eating. At first I thought eggs as I couldn't see it.

But now I got this video. Clearly something is coming out of him! Any ideas what it could be? I've googled and thinking bloat? Which looks like not much help for him.

How is it behaving, other than reclusive? These Julidochromis are very secretive when spawning, and, although I have never seen it, this looks like it may be the genital papilla of the male. Is there a female hovering around? Just a thought.

on send look, and again, I am not sure, the extension may be too far anterior (forward) on the fish to be genitalia, it should come out the vent, where the poop comes out. I can't make out the vent on these photos, and it has been a very long time since i dealt with these fish.
