    Hi all,

    I have a proven male discus and is currently in a cube tank on his own as I lost the female around 2 months ago and haven't been able to replace yet. The male has recently started looking down at the bottom of the glass quite a bit but I don't feel as though it's the headstand problem. The male is still eating fine and does move around the tank still, and my question is could it be down to him being lonely?
