Not that I've seen I tested today and nitrates are at 40ppm so way better than it was. Doing another change tomorrow. I didn't feed them last night to help with stress and turned my heater up

Whats your current temp? I'm not sure heat will help anything unless you see signs of Ich or something. I'd just work on stable temp and water changes to get nitrate down. Again unless there are other signs you may have told me and I forgot
