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.

hello and welcome to you both. :)
as much information as you can possibly think of helps people here
help you and the fish.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

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.

If you don't stand up for something you'll fall for anything...
