    Help, my kois at it again

    Today I noticed that my kois are all flashing again. I have maintained my koi tank water well with almost daily changes - nitrite level (o), Nitrate level (80) but this has always remained high due to my small tank. Both hardness levels ok. PH OK.
    No new addition recently. So what else should I be looking at and what remedy should I consider?
    Kaysee

    Not trying to be fussy, but "OK" is not a number. Numbers give us something to work with. "OK" is an opinion, which gives us nothing to work with
    The devil really does like to hide in the details so please be specific so we can offer better advice.

    Here are the numbers

    No3 : 80mg/l
    No2 : 0
    GH : 7d
    KH : 6d
    pH : 7.0

    I live in an apartment so water is generally isolated except for my changes.
    BTW, I also noticed that a couple of koi had not been eating well (some).
    thanks
