    Just had another thought maybe your heat is to high.. I think I read Oscars like it around 77. Do you always have it that high? I have barbs that like it colder and they get sluggish when it is to hotter then they are comfortable with.

    I haven't changed the temp for a long time.

    Was thinking maybe some kind of parasite but i dont see anything on the fish or in the tank that would indicate them having any. I do feed them red minnows once and a while so its always a worry but again, i dont see any sign of parasites

    Update: Added some salt to the tank last night just to see if it would help. Today all the fish are back to swimming around and not resting on the bottom at all. Must be some sort of parasite that I cant see any sign of?

    If it were parasitic, I wouldn't think that the salt would work that quickly. But what the salt does is add some hardness to our water.

    You said that water parameters were normal. pH levels the same? What do you keep your pH at? Do you measure your GH and KH? Do you add any minerals to the water?
