Do a larger water change and cut down feeding to once a day and see how they do. I might be wrong so if you have test strips check all your parameters and post them, to me it sounds like bad water or a swim bladder issue but the overfeeding leading to high ammonia seems probable
Okay yea maybe. They are babies. No bigger then 4 maybe 5 inches. I dont think thats high. I did the strip test and it says the nitrate is high. Im going to feed them once a day, maybe 2, and change the water now. I hope it works.
