Peacocks

Hi, so I have a 75 gallon bf and all my readings are ok, but 3 out of 6 of my fish keep swimming from the bottom to the top of the tank, is this normal or is there something wrong?

Here's what's in my tank:
•4" ob blueberry peacock
•2&1/2" ob blueberry peacock
•2 3&1/2" sulfer head peacocks
•1 3&1/2" red shouldered peacock
•1 3&1/2" orchid blue peacock

some say this means there's something off in the water chemistry, others say it's normal and their fish will often do so after a water change.. sorry, not much help because I really don't know, but my fish do it too. Here's my blue peacock up/down swimming and playing in the filter outlet one night, he was at it for hours and he and the other fish are all ok weeks later.. Another thought is aeration with either a bubbler or a lot of surface agitation

Watch "Playing in the current" on YouTube

should be some air in the water.. if your filter outflow/pump jet causes enough water movement at the top then a bubbler is not needed.. If you don't have these then you need an air pump/bubbler
