View Full Version : HELP!! Angel with swollen gills!

08-17-2007, 12:52 PM
I have a large female angel, who was as happy as larry yesterday, laying eggs all over the place, and this morning she has swollen gills. She has been separated from other angels in the tank for some while because she is quite aggressive, but when I saw she was laying yesterday, allowed her out for a while in a vain attempt to get one of the males to fertilise her eggs. She was getting at the males but they did not attack her back. She is again separate from the others but her mouth stays wide open and her fins are swollen and pinkish. Any ideas?! Should I rush out for treatment?!

She may have gill flukes. Aquarium salt may help with gill function but you will probably have to medicate, as well.

Try Melafix to medicate with...it's all natural and gentle.
