lots of poop and fish look weird..please help
I have had my 20 gal. tank since Feb. 07 and it includes 1 common pleco, 1 tiger barb, 1 blue dwarf gourami, and 1 long fin cherry barb. The cherry barb has been in the tank for about one month and the rest have been there since Feb. I have had to deal with ICK once in march but nothing since, until now. I know my tank isn't overstocked and I'm not over feeding my fish, but they are pooping excessive amounts and it's clay colored and white. I just did a 50% water change on Saturday and had to do another today because the gravel was very dirty and the fish looked wierd. They were all slightly pale and the tiger fish's stripes were fading. I tested the water before the water change, ammonia: 0, nitrite: 0, nitrate: 0, and pH: 7.2 (normal for my tank). I don't know what is going on. Any help please?
