The CO2 was off the whole time. No one was hovering when I turned the lights on but their colors were very drained. The Amanos didn't seem phased.

GBR bloated, not eating

He looks washed out and hasn't had any interest in eating. He looks bloated and just generally not acting normal. I'll get water parameters tomorrow. Any ideas?
