    Sounds like it's just having a poo. I'd probably curl up and look awful too if I had to poo from your mouth

    I have seen it happen with my hammer,it always comes back full again I think its more due to it expelling something it doesnt like.

    maybe it does not like the cyclopeese ?
    i gave him some last week to see if he'd take some.
    maybe it just took a bit of time to kick in.

    thx

    Are you sure it's not simply splitting? They will do this by the mouth seperating into two and often it looks like it's either swelling or expelling, but it's actually a grwoth that's becoming 2 seperate pieces.

    well.. if its splitting.. i'll have it all over the aquarium.
    it was spreading everywhere. clear like water.. with a slimy feel.. like spit.
