I did a another wc. I used tap water this time. I put some prime in it. And let it sit for a couple of hours before adding it to the tank. After adding it I waited like a hour to test it and ammonia came down to 0 or real close.

I cant check for nitrites right now but i will soon.

if your tank cycled then you shouldn't have amonia and nitrite in. ?

I used purified water last time. I think i could be over feeding. That can cause a ammonia spike right?

hi
if you see food floating down in the water then yes,i'd say too much
however if they eat ever bit then perhaps smaller amounts.
i feed mine twice a day.

there shouldn't really be a reason he waits for food at the bottom,
i think unless he's just being lazy(any one else like to chime in here :) )
i think your problem is too much food,and it's rotting,it's messing
with your water.for this week perhaps feed Very little and keep testing
the water,write the results down on here if you like,
a sort of diary,then we can see the progress,it might give a little more
light on your problem,
:)

Hi I think I may be having the same problem, I am new to keeping fish, cycled my tank for a week then added some zebras yesterday, this afternoon 3 of the 7 I put in seem to be 'sleeping' just below the surface. Are they actually sleeping or poorly? Tested the water with tetra test 6in1 test strips and all seemed fine. Am going to go and get an ammonia test kit and see what that says. Any ideas would be really appreciated.

I had this happen to 1 of my 6 cycling danios, get really skinny and die. What is the reason for internal parasites and any medications?
