    Default new angel flotting at the surface... help


    0 Not allowed!
    One of my new angels dont seem to be doing so well. Yesterday I noticed he wasnt eating at all and was swimming around almost in slow motion. This morning I noticed he almost looked like he was gasping for air but still under water. Fins and gills going like crazy but his body wasnt moving that much. Like trying to run your fastest on a tredmill... moving fast but not going anywhere. By noon he was at the top and on his side. still beathing heavy and fis fins going like mad.

    Water is perfect and at 78*. I have an airstone and a spnge filter going so I dont think its an oxygen issue. I dont see anything weird on him. No fuzz or wsorms that I can see. Though I did notice a thin red line in his tailfin starting at his body to the tip of the fin. Was thinking swimm bladder but not to sure. I've never had to deal with that one before.

    He's having a seriously hard time now and cant drop down at all.
    Any thoughts? Thanks!

    Also... he is in a QT tank with one other angel and she's doing just fine. I did put him in a breeder catch. He had pooped since putting in there and it looks normal as well.

    The only thing I can say is that whenever I have seen a fish that far gone, it did not live for much longer. I would consider euthanizing it if it is suffering.

    I was thinking the same thing King. Just wanted to see if there was something I could do him first. But unfortunately he didnt make it. What ever it was it worked pretty fast. Only had these guys for a few days.
    On the plus side though, I brought him back to the LFS I got him at and they replaced him for me. They're a great store and take great care of the regulars. So now I have 2 QT tanks going... want to keep an eye on the second angel of the pair just in case and one for the new angel. Didnt want to put him in the same QT just in case there is something seriously wrong.
    Running out of tank set ups...

    sounds like it might be Nitrite poisoning, what are the readings on your tank water?

    Ya a little late for that... lol
    the water was good though and the numbers were where the should be. One of those things that I'll just never know.
    On the up side, the two are doing great and have paired up! They've spawned a few times but are still working on their parenting skills. Hope to have a ton pretty soon.
