The 3 smaller xingu and tapajos seems a bit more alert now, but the bigger goldline eyes looks a bit sunken. Hope that the increase of temp can help.

Thats probably the best approach but add in some biocycle to add some bb into the water while doing your water change. And probably
Stop turning on the lights too to further stress them out.
Good luck

Turn on heater at the same time it's better if u could increase aeration as well.
Hope ur panaques recover soon.

Thanks to all the advice. Have increase the aeration as well. The goldline seems to always park itself on dw at position with most aeration.

Well keeping my finger cross, focus in maintain good water quality and with heater and more aeration, hope they will recover soon.

could you share the full set up? if this is your routine all the while, I find it qt weird that the fishes react this way, maybe you had changed a larger portion than usual?

I'm not too sure too. Could be change a bit more water than usual but usually 30% wc weekly but never more than 50%. Well still observing... Looks a bit more alert today and eyes clearer.

Thanks. After few days of increased temp, aeration, regular wc, signs are good. They seems more normal now and moving into hiding. Still not eating yet other than the dw but eyes and color are becoming more normal.

Will continue to observe and slowly introduce some food today.

Do introduce food, but if not taken, do remove, lest it spoils the water quality. For sunken eyes, I found that it works to isolate them, then feed solely with fbw or tubi.
