    im going to give it a while longer. i was reading about it on amother site and someone said it may be whirling disease. anyone heard about that??
    What are your other parameter readings? I'm assuming after 4 mos your tank is cycled so your ammonia should be at 0.
    46 gal fw tank with black skirt tetras, neon tetras, spotted corys, cherry barbs, otoclinus, snails & 4 amano shrimp - plastic & live plants
    5 gal QT

    It doesn't matter if the tank has been set up for 4 months or a year. You can loose a cycle in numerous ways.......most often by over cleaning. Having that many ill fish at one time points to water issues. If a quick fix like a water change may help them, why would you wait even longer?

    I had done a water change on saturday. That's when I found out that he was jumpy. I didn't mean that I was waiting to do the water change.

    They are better now. Not sure what was wrong with them. But all is better. They are no longer jumpy or hiding.

    Thank you all for your recommendations.
