Thanks bex -
The strange behaviors in my tank have me just baffled....
The molly found the heater an is back to loving up to it, even through a plant.
The flashing is still going on - its pretty frequent so I know its not the normal.
The platy hiding is still going on.
The clown loach getting more and more anorexic is still going on.
The marble angel bloating one day and not the next is still going on.
I am truly surprised that no fish had died yet.
I test my waters and they test consistent with all the readings I've had since day one. The pH has only varied from 7.8 to 8 to 7.8 again.
Going to do another major water change tonight and see what happens. I guess I can't err if I do lots of partial water changes, right? *grin*
