    Question Juvenile Angelfish Died Suddenly!!!


    0 Not allowed!
    Ok so I bought three fish on 5/21/15 I bought a dwarf gourami, a peppered cory cat and a silver angelfish from my LFS its a big box store were I've bought all my other fish and they have all done fairly well. I did my weekly WC on 5/23/15 and did the same routine I have done since the beginning. I drained approx. 25-30% of the water dosed the entire tank with a dose of SEA-CHEM prime and I did a dose of API Stress Zyme since it was the new fishes first WC, it seems to help. Everything was great this week I tested the water on Wednesday and it all looked good. Saturday came time for another WC, I always test the water before I do a water change and the parameter were on par. Wake up Sunday everyone is swimming to the top to get fed but I don't see the angel, so I watch for a minute and nothing, I have a decoration that has an air stone in it to both aerate the water and give a cool visual affect and I notice the air coming out weird so I investigate and find my angelfish it there dead. No discoloration, no white spots, no indicators that it was sick. I have heard that they are very fragile as small juveniles but it seemed to be doing great and just up and died. I don't know if you guys have any idea what might have went wrong. I do plan to get more, what should I look for and stay away from when buying angels?

    Tank parameters the day I did my WC

    Ammonia 0ppm
    Nitrites 0ppm
    Nitrates 10-20ppm they're to close for me to tell I always write down 20
    pH 7.6 like it has been since the day I started.

    I did post this in another spot.
    Thanks in advance!!!

    Generally, quite a bit of folks will click on the New Post button, so it kinda doesn't really matter if you end up in the wrong spot, unless it is really off. But even then, the mods will move it if this ended up in the Chatterbox, for instance.

    I would PM a mod like Aeonflame or Cliff (I see Cliff on more often), and see if he can delete this one, and move your older one to the right area so that you don't lose any information already provided.
