Exclamation Help With My Blood Parrot Fish

I have 5 parrot fish. Yesterday they were fine today i went to check on them and they are laying on the bottom of the tank. at 1st i thought they were dead but then i noticed they were breathing and kinda moving. 4 of them are acting that way they are laying side ways on the bottom. They have nothing visabley wrong with them. If any one has any idea whats wrong with them please please help.

Yes, please post your tank info & water parameters (ammonia, nitrite and nitrate).
How long has this tank been set up?
Any other fish in the tank besides the parrots?
When did you do your last water change and how much water did you change out?
How often do you perform water changes?
It *sounds* like an uncycled tank...hard to know without the above information.
