    Seems that condition is caused by rotten food sometimes. Maybe check your food?

    Ive read some odd posts. One where the tank lost power, the fish were suffocating from lack of oxygen and starting gulping at the surface. The guy got home and saw it, few hours later the one fish was dead with a bloated stomach from swallowing wind
