What are your exact reaadings for ammonia, nitrite, & nitrate? How often & how big (%) are your water changes? I suspect its an issue with water quality.

Please do a 50% water change with temperature matched, properly conditioned water as soon as possible & continue to do this atleast once a week (2x would be better). Please get your water tested asap- make sure you ask specifically for your exact readings for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate & ph & write them down. Its 'ok' or its 'safe' is not sufficient. Please post these results here when you are able to. We need to address any water quality issues before considering if something else may be amiss.
