flashing with no reason?

I am getting most of my loaches flashing not continuosly but its noticable. I cant find anything wrong with the water temp ok, ph 7.2, amonia 0, nitrite 0, nitrate 5-10. I cant see any visable marks or problems with the fish.I havent lost any fish but cant think whjat else to do. I dont want to medicate without a direct reason. My only other theory is that the plastic container i am preparing the water in could be leeching chemicals into the water..its a new refuse bin and it does have a funny smell??

am I worrying unduly..any other ideas
