Hey Mudkicker, Is this what you were looking for? :-?

Yes, a drastic temperature change like that would be a real stressor on your tank.

Since they are having white stringy feces and not eating, and two of them appear emaciated, I would begin bloat treatment at once. There are two methods for two different meds posted below in the links. If neither of these meds are available to you, you could also try using Jungle Parasite Clear fizz tabs, this would require 3 treatments spaced 48 hours apart, with a 25% water change prior to the 2nd and 3rd treatment. I would treat the entire tank, and I would refrain from feeding throughout any of the treatment methods I chose to use. I prefer to not even offer food until 48 hours after the final treatment and a huge water change.

i have used it in the past with great results for bloat.
i am using it now because the Clout treatment did not work.

Good luck, hope it works out for ya. Will have to save them treatment instructions just in case.....since both Metro and Clout have to be ordered here, and one of our LFS's look at ya weird when you mention those names like your speaking Greek.
