I have a taeniopareius that has been thin for awhile, and the past several days, stays near the top of the water, swimming around the edge slighly on its side, then will stay in one place with its mouth at the water line. It will swim down every once in awhile. It *is* eating.

I have three other taeniopareius, three severum, one yoyo loach, and one medium sized pleco.

I did a water change a few days ago. All the other fish seem ok. This is a 75 gal tank. I put in an airstone. Nitrite=0, nitrate=10, ammonia=0, KH=89.5, and pH=7.8-8. (Yes, I know the pH should be lower, but it's been this way for probably six months).

Any ideas what is wrong? Two days I put some salt in, but I haven't noticed any difference.

thanks

Not really-- I've seen some chasing, but that's about it. I'll have to watch closer.

Usually fish "act right" if they see you in the room, you're probably missing behavior that's a lot worse when you go to bed or work during the day ect.
