I've just a few questions for you:

How long have you had your fish?

Have you adequate aeration?

Have you added any new plants recently?

Any other symptoms such as thin white poop? Spitting out food? Clamped fins?

Please post back soon :)

Hi mooreman, did you just go thru a high nitrites spike? I think that was you, was it?

Edit---that is you. How long have the levels been normal?

After a spike of nitrites at 5 you are going to have some lasting affects on the fish for a bit. I think that may be what is going on. How many days since they were normal?

Second edit---you need to take down the signature asking people to vote for your tank......koko disqualifys you if anyone knows. Thanks. :)

Glad we got that cleared up.

Ok, since it is less likely water quality then there should be something else going on.

Is there anything unusual with them?

When you got them did you ever treat them for parasites? I know that they are not exhibiting any symptoms of them, but something is bothering them.

Did you recently do a water change? Could be a PH fluctuation or temp fluctuation????

I am not sure if that will help.

Make sure to ph match with the tank as well as match the temps. Any difference in them could cause the fish not to feel well.
