4 Fish 1 Parital Water Change = 3 Fish swimming at the top right hand Corner?

    I do partial water change in one of my 10g tanks at least twice a week because I have two little guys that haven't quite got the hang of competing for food so I over feed a bit.

    When I do pwc's i treat the water that is within a degree or two of what the tank is set at. I change about 50% or so because with a 10g the gravel vacuum sucks water out pretty fast.

    The last time or two after doing the partial water change 3 of the 4 fish in the tank go to the top right hand corner and stay there for awhile. This baffles me...

    Any idea why?

    Could be a difference in tank and tap parameters, I would test your taps parameters.

    I have tested it before and the pH is high. But when i test the tank pH it is high but maybe a notch below the tap water. Maybe that's it..
