Upside down Anglefish
Okay guys. One of my angles is swimming really crazy. He is fine other than that. He is eating, pooping, and swimming fine. He just can't seem to right himself. What's up with this and what can I do to fix it?

I've noticed that people HATE it when you point out how stupid they are, so now I try to do it politely.

A similar thing happened to my male angel several months ago after a water change. I was so bummed thinking I was losing him. Took 2 days, but he recovered completely. I have no idea what happened, but have read in another thread something about oxygen depletion if water being replaced was too warm. I chalked it up to that or something similar as he's been fine ever since and I didn't treat for any disease.
I hope yours recovers as quickly.

Mandy, I saw your thread title and thought you had discovered a new species. Hope your critter gets things sorted out soon.
