The drooping fins can be a sign of stress. Look into getting an ammonia test kit. That's the first thing to spike if something is wrong with the cycle, if there's overfeeding, or if something dead is left in the tank too long (like fish, snails, plants, etc). Because your nitrates are 0, I believe your tank is not yet cycled.

Until then, increase water changes to 25-50% per day to keep the water clean.
