Hello there ,

May I suggest checking your four parameters with your test kit. Particularly nitrite that will make your fish flick for sure and then ph.....incorrect ph will mimic nearly every symptom going. Now on the basis that your tests are good.....your fish will nearly always flick after a water change ...the mucous layer on the fish will be affected and they flick for a bit that is common......on the basis that it is none of the above ...my guess is a parasite....most likely skin flukes but knowing what type of fish would help. You will not be able to see protozoan parasites with naked eye...in fact apart from argulus and anchorworm we cannot see parasites....so if you are worried you can bring the fish up to me and I will scrape it and tell you what the problem is ...free of charge like I always do.......Cause I'm just a slave......

Cherry Barbs, Blue Eye Forktail Rainbows and Pygmy Corrie's..
Ammonia zero, Nitrite zero, Nitrate 10, PH 7.2 and steady at that...weekly 50 percent water changes using Stress Coat as dechlorinator...

Thanks for the info and offer Ian...
