ok. also 2 of them are acting weird. the ryukin is staying at the top of the tank and the larger fantail is staying in a pot and laying there. the ryukin went down to eat but they larger fantail only ate when i put some pellets in to the pot. ammo and nitrites are 0 using the api test kit(couldnt do nitrate), and i have a lot of aeration.

Or perhaps all that new water was of somewhat different chemistry than what was in the "old" tank. I cannot say. Did you compare parameters old versus new prior to transferring the fish? Did you do a good long acclimation?
