    put some of the coral back in, like media bag, and raise the GH a little bit and see if the angel improves. Or you can try epsom salt at a rate of 1/2 teaspoon per gallon added over a 24 hour period. Measure the Gh about 1 hour after adding the pure epsom salt (magnesium sulfate). If you reach the same GH level as you once had it, before adding the full dosage, stop adding, and maintain that level fore 3-4 days to see if the fish improves.

    If not, I would look in to buying Seachem Kanaplex or Triple Sulfa for your PH.
    Do you think sulfaplex will work as well as kanaplex? Our local store currently doesn't have kanaplex

    It works lsightly differently. I prefer kanaplex since it can be readily absorbed through the skin. But, I would try sulfa plex since you can get that now.
