Need way more information.
How long has the tank been running?
What size is it (dimensions please not just volume)?
What species and how many were in it?
What species and how many did you add?
What are the readings for ammonia, nitrite and nitrate?
What sort of filtration is being used?
I suspect a newly set up tank with poor water quality. Do an immediate 30 - 40% water change.
