odd behavior

So last week I was weeding in my garden and fed my fish after. I grabbed a couple cubes and put them on the intake like usual and food goes into the tank over time. I noticed my long nose hawk and koi wrasse acting odd after eating. laying on their side for a minute or so then they were fine. I figured maybe the mint or something from a week got on the food and they had a reaction. Anyway, skip ahead to just now I fed them again with tongs on the goes in, they ate and i look to see my long nose laying on his side in my mushrooms. ***? I put in a plastic food feeder and touch him and then he swims ok and hangs on a rock normally. What is going on here anyone?? Bad food? I am at a loss.
