Do you feed them dry pellets only, one type of food source?

my guess is, ammonia in the water is high, fish keep going surface gasp for air. Air go inside and the poo have alot air therefore float.

Feed them pellets that sink, cos when they gobble up floating pellets they tend to gulp in lots of air. Hikari Lionhead Pellets is a good choice. If u wanna feed them floating pellets as an alternative, make sure u soak them for 5 mins to ensure that 1.) the air trapped in them are expelled fully, 2.) to ensure that they sink. If they take floating pellets directly, the air will get expelled in their bodies, causing them to be bloated.
