Is therapy the answer?

Hi Guys,

Long time, no contributions from me.... sorry, I'll keep up in future!

Wondered if you could provide a little bit of advice for a complicated situation.... it goes as follows...

I have a 2 foot tank, with two 4 inch clowns, one 9 inch plec, one 6 inch CAE, a token cardinal tetra (very old) and an albino redfinned shark, again about 6 inches. The thermostat on the heater broke during my recent absence, and fish sitter didn't know that 90/32 was not going to make the tank inhabitants happy. This was a few weeks ago now, I have reduced the temp as quickly as I dared, (a few degrees a day) back to 25. As far as I know, it may have been that high for a fortnight

However, everything is still hiding, even the CAE is no longer as agressive as he was, and prefers to hang out
