Have you tested for ammonia, nitrIte and nitrAte? How often do you do water changes? How many fish are now in the tank, and what species? What foods do you feed? Do you have wood in the aquarium?...

Tons of them in Florida. The more south you get (think Miami) the more you'll find! It's like a fishing safari! Unfortunately, all the exotics are problematic to the native FL inhabitants.
