Sick Guorami

I had one sick Gourami, now the other is also not looking good. They hover at the surface, looking like hypoxia, working their mouth and gills very near the surface. Water tests are all good. The tank is one month today, and just the past few days all NO2/3 levels came down nicely, I think completing the cycle. I don't know what it is. I think the water is very good. All the other fish are very healthy.

Here are some pics of the Guorami:

Welcome to Fishforum.com.

Can you please post the exact figures of ammonia, nitrites and nitrates?:) How low are your nitrites and nitrates? Any detected nitrites and ammonia requires immediate partial water changes.
