i've got an air strip in the back turned all the way up
How is the temperature? My fish started swimming at the top of the tank when the temperature of my tank fell during winter. Since then, i got a better heater.

Are they gasping/yawning at all? If so then it's definitely an airation issue. If not, is there a stronger current up there maybe from a filter?
No need to do 25% changes everyday unless you are stressing your bioload by overstocking.
the temp of the water is about 80.....and he seems to be breathing regularly......i do have a hang on back filter....so i guess that may create a stronger current.....also i noticed a bite taken out of his tail maybe the bigger one has est. to much terriotory in this tank......but if thats a problem i'm setting up my 55 today hopefully.....
