Is your tank cycled? How long has it been set up? What is your maintenance routine? If you have gravel, do you vacuum under your decorations? Hopefully not, but it could possibly be old tank syndrome.

Gilly, this old tank syndrome article may not apply to your tank, but it does have very good information about the water changes, which can be followed regardless of what is happening, it should help.
