    I’ve had to put my 7 white clouds in a 20 litre Arc 12 x 10 ins, while their new 60 litre tank is sorted. They were previously quite happy in a Fluval Chi which measured 10 x 10 x 16 ins high, I had no problem with them in that tank, but now I’ve got them in the Arc they seem lethargic, sitting on the bottom most of the time, all that is except the baby who swims around quite normally. When they do swim around they never leave the bottom quarter of the tank.

    But at feeding time, its like feeding the sharks, they are very boisterous, far more so than when they where in the Chi, and soon eat everything I’ve given them.

    Water parameters are Nitrite 0 – Ammonia 0 – Nitrate 10 – Ph 7.4 Water temperature around 22c, I can’t get it any lower as its in quite a warm room. I’ve had the 3 Golden for about 6 months and the rest, 3 long finned and the baby just over one month. I’ve never known this behaviour with White Clouds before, is there something wrong?

    When you moved them to the new tank did you use the water from their old tank?

    About 50% and brought the temperature down to what it was in their old tank with new water. Their old tank was always just under 20c but this one, although starting at 19C is now holding steady at 22C, that’s the only thing I can see different and I’d hardly think that would make that much difference would it?

    The combination of a really big water change and the fact that you transferred them to a new tank might have caused a bit of a chock. Next time use 100% of the water from the old tank and do small and frequent water changes once they┬┤re transferred.
