Is the water frothy at the top? (Chalky colored bubbles). Does it leave significant residue at the water line?

It may not be an issue, but I've seen the above two relating to over chemicalizing (I think I invented a word there) or relating to inappropriate gravel use in aquariums.

Try a water change to moderate.

If the fish seem healthy and you're not noticing any type of build up on them than it may be okay. But usually whitish residue in the water means there is some sort of inclusion that could cause problems.

I know this is an old post but I want to answer this.

The best way, folks to tell what is going on with your tanks, orbs, bowls etc. is to test the water!
This will help you make a decision on what exactly is going on with your water and what you need to do to improve the conditions.  Chemical upsets in the water occur most often in smaller tanks/containers and most certainly more often if this container has no filter or air circulation.  Larger tanks, once established are easier to care for because the large volume of water doesn't change as drastically or as fast as smaller volume ones.  Not to mention that the fish have more room in a larger home to move around and well... behave like nature intended fish to behave.
