Sounds like your tank may not be cycled
What is the ammonia level at right now? That would determine the amount of water you need to change. 10% won't help you a lot
You might want to read through the cycling with fish thread here, link below in my sigIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

Did you cycle your tank?
Have you recently changed or cleaned your filters?
Have you added to your stock?
Any of those things could be the issue.130g: 7 Angelfish, 1 Bolivian, 12 Neon Tetras, 14 Serpae Tetras, 9 Kuhli Loaches, 1 Otocinslus, 1 Corydora ? Ghost Shrimp
I've noticed that people HATE it when you point out how stupid they are, so now I try to do it politely.
