Thanks fishlady,

Just completing 50% water change now which I hope will make the fish feel better in the short term.
I totally want to know what caused the issue but really not sure. Will check filter is all clear although I really don't suspect this.

Would the fin rot treatment have caused the change? The rot was not at all serious but catching it early I hoped to avoid major issues. The fish are both boys but have been desperately chasing one another to make fishy babies which has caused the odd torn fin and led me to replace plastic plants for natural.

Any other things I could investigate as the cause?

Thanks so much
