My guess is that they are maturing and the relatively cramped conditions are now leading to stress and aggression.

this is messed up. there were no signs of any issues.. no scale problems. no burning of the gills. just the one crazy swimmer. thought swim bladder infection. after the PWC. they were all huddling in the pirate boat. looked almost like they were in mourning. this sucks. so sad.
