Odessa Barbs and Gold Barbs spinning in circles and dying

Trashboat

I'm having a strange problem with my Odessa barbs and Gold Barbs which has never happened before it started about 3 weeks ago and one of them was swimming strangely in a circular motion, I instantly took it out and put it in quarantine for a few days, it then died in quarantine, I thought it was and isolated incident but about a day after the first one died another 2 started doing and they both died now I am down to only a few left and they don't seem like they are going to make it. Does anyone know a cause for this? I have a 45gal fresh water aquarium my parameters are 0 ammonia 0 nitrite 30 nitrate and 7.8ph.

A bit of an out there suggestion but is any of your tank equipment malfunctioning? Electric shocks might be enough to kill them.

I assume you are talking about the heater? But I doubt it could be that since wouldn't it affect them all at once and my heater is pretty new as well
