    i have a 30 gal that is heavily planted. i have 6 cardinal tetras, 6 penguin tetras, 2 ram cichlids, 4 platies and 4 amono shrimp. the tank seems to be unhealthy all of a sudden. the fish arent looking healthy and colorful. the ammoia, nitrates and nitrites are all fine. they dont eat even though the are hungry. i am sure that thats the reason for them being generally unhealthy. any help PLEASE

    Your fish are stressed for some reason. What are your exact parameters? What are you feeding? Has a water change helped?

    Why do you think they are hungry if they aren't eating? Since they aren't eating, stop feeding(for a few days. fish are cold blooded and food is not as urgent to them as their behavior implies) and do a large water change. If they are still behaving wonky after that, have you added any new stock( fish and plants) within the last 2 months? Temperature will also help, just in case your heater suddenly has malfunctioned or similar.
