Hi. Sorry to hear you're having problems. You mentioned earlier that your fish were flipping over from its back to its belly. Did the new fish do this? It sounds like they were "flashing" (rubbing themselves on the gravel or other objects). This could be from either a parasite such as ich or velvet or from an irritant in the water.

150 Gallon - Mostly American Cichlids
135 Gallon - Angelfish Community
75 Gallon - Odd couple (Polleni/Angelfish)
55 Gallon - African tank
20 Gallon Long - QT
10 Gallon - Empty
