i started with 2 convicts. 1 white and 1 striped. i now have about 40! 3 of them have become like flounders! i thought they were gonna die, but swim with all their mite when i feed them then go to the bottom to rest. this has been going on for about a month, so not dieing. its like they have no swim bladder. asked at the pet store and was told they never heard of it! anyone have any ideas?:fish2:

If you have a whole big spawn in your tank now, I wonder if your bacteria load was enough for all them. Have you kept up with water changes and done testing when necessary.
