    hi guys!

    tank: 5.5ft long x 2ft high x 2ft wide
    2 tiger oscars
    4 blood parrrots
    3 tinfoil barbs

    My tank has been up and running smooth since the last 1 year with everyone getting along just fine...
    however i have seen a change in the behaviour lately but im totally confused and clueless as to what is going on...

    i have noticed a lot of splashing overnight and whenever i turn the lights ON i can see the tinfoils all at the surface and seem figity...

    there is no change in the behaviour of any of the other fish and have yet to see my oscars or blood parrots going after them, all is peaceful throughtout the day... breaks off during night. i turned the lights on to observe but failed to see any fighting going on...

    what could be going on friends!?

    something i missed out earlier was that the tinfoils are either larger or the same size as the oscars and BP

    Not overly sure but with all barbs they are skittish so they might just be mucking around at lights out.

    What are the water params? just to rule that out.
