I had done a water change the day before with treated water and so did another 25% one tonight. but now one of my clown louchs is very very pale and sitting on the bottom, none of the fish are eatting or show interest in food.

    Tech501 welcome to FishLore!! Stop by the welcome forum and tell us a little about your tank(s) .
    Do you have water tests. Most of us use Aquarium Pharmaceuticals test kit. We need to know your numbers for Ammonia, Nitrite and Nitrates please.
    How often do you do water changes and how much. These things will help us help you ;)
