I need some help guys.. again.. unfortunately. One of my angels looks a bit sick.

this time the little fella has a long thin white poo hanging out of his bum. Its about 3 cm long.

he's been breathing heavily for about the last 4 days and is looking skinny.

He has had a brother (or sister) in the same tank thats been giving him grief pretty reguarly, attacking him etc.. they are both youngish and of wild type.

details, 30gal, 3 small clown loaches, 2 young angels and 4 small siamese algae eaters. These fish are all young. Tank is well established, cycled for months and nitrate levels are around 10. Regular 30% water changes, atleast once a week.

loads of plants, all living and presumably healthy.

any ideas whats wrong with him?

it is not uncommon for angels to fight
it is a mating ritual, i breed angels and see this quite offen when i get a new angel, this happens just before they pair up

unsure on why it is sick i hope dave helped you
