I just changed my water today, the p's are acting nervous and they tend to swim at the surface,why are they acting like this. It's the second time I change their water since I got them( 2 weeks ago), do you think they are just a bit spooked?I ckecked my ph at 7.0 and water temp.. at 75.

Your PH is perfect, your temp needs to go higher. My fish also do swim at the surface from time to time after water changes.

After water changed Ps will act a little different. Sometime mine swim around like fools, other times they sit in the corners for a hour. Since it's only the second time you have changed the water they will get use to it.

How much filtration do you have and what type? If you don't have much surface agitation and filtration as far as gph then you might not be getting enough oxygen to your water causing them to want to swim closer to the surface where the oxygen is more dense.
