    Hey AC! Long time no see! ;)
    Can someone help me please. I came across a new issue I've never dealt with before. My Angel appears to be "peeling" skin from around his eye!? Yes, it is around the perimeter of his eye, not on or in it. I initially noticed this yesterday, as one of his eyes was doing this, only slightly. I know I needed to get a WC done but didn't have the time until today. Well, now both his eyes look like this and it's worse. I've attached pictures so I'm hoping they attached.

    He was also keeping to himself yesterday and today and is also getting picked on. At times he does hold his own and fight back but not usually. He also ate flakes yesterday but would not even touch the bloodworms today. 😢 Now it appears as though the stringy stuff coming from his eye has a pink-ish tint to it, as well as his ventral fins (or maybe it's just the tank lights!?)

    For those of you that know me, I have not changed anything in the tank since I was here last (December or January '17). At times, I do go almost 2 weeks before a WC. I know, that's horrible but there has been many changes in my life and I do the best I can.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. You guys are awesome! 😊 TIA

    My bad! The only thing that has changed in the last few months was that I added 3 yo yo loaches to help eradicate my MTS. The loaches are huge now and do chase the Angels at times. Bullies!

    I would PM Angelcraze when you get a chance, she's our resident "angelfish expert", IMO

    If the loaches are harassing the angel(s), it could be a wound, is my only guess...

    Hope you poor guy gets better soon, and its just bullying. Frequent large water changes are the best cure for wounds, if that is what it turns out to be.

    Thank you so much!! Honestly, it's so good to be back but I might be popping on and off for a while. So many exciting new things happening! :) In the past few months I've become an Independent Consultant with Pampered Chef (like I don't have enough to do already ;) and my hubby and I are also expecting our first little one the end of July. It's been very busy around here to say the least but very exciting.

    I didn't want to post this right here but for some reason I am having quite the difficulty navigating this site. Did something change? I'm having a hard time posting a new thread, and whenever I click my notifications at the top, I always get this message......

    My next issue.....my poor Angelfish! :( I hate to feel so ignorant here because I should know better (!?) I am just at a loss right now and my heart is breaking. So, I know I need to get my yo yo's out of the tank because they are literally biting at my Angel and the Angel is not fighting back. The yo yo's are too hard to catch so I thought maybe I should remove the Angel and put him in my 10 gallon. I could just use water from the 125 gallon and do daily WC's. If I remove the Angel and quarantine him until he heals, will the other fish attack him once I put him back with the others? Ohh, my mind is racing.....not sure the best approach but I need to do something. :(

    Yes, I would get the angel out of that tank ASAP...10G would be just temporary, but better than getting beat up by the loaches
