Very sick convict cichlid

Came home from work tonight and My convict cichlid is at the top of my tank swiming akwardly and i notice the entire bottom part of his stomach and by his anus is bright puffy red with what looks like a small lump coming out of it .. He wasn't like this lastnight when i fed him and he was fine this afternoon when i turned the light on before i went to work... Does anyone have any ideas as to what could be wrong he dosnt look good and i dont think he's gonna last to much longer

Very sick convict cichlid

In order to get advice, you need to tell all the details. How big is your tank, how long has it been set up, what other fish you have, what is your water change schedule, what are your ammonia, nitrite and nitrate levels, what you feed your fish, etc. I don't know anything about convicts, but getting these answers will help whoever does, and sees this next, to be able to help you better.
