Whats the best treatment for fish that are flashing or as some call it flicking ?

They go up to the pickup tube on the filter or the heater ect... and smack in to it like they have a itch need to scratch..

I don't have a definitive answer for you, sorry. I want to watch this thread though.

I will say you will most likely be asked: What kind of fish, do they have anything on them (like white ich spots, wooly looking stuff, etc) and what are the water parameters.

the water parameters are all perfect and the tank has completely cycled.

The fish that are doing it the most are the platys,sword tails, and sometimes the cherry barbs.Visually there is nothing that can be seen, even with close observation i can't see any kind of spots or specks of any kind.If there is parasites witch i think there is they are eather to small to see or under there scales or perhaps in there gills where they can't be easily seen..
