Thread: Flagfin angelfish not looking hot

    Exclamation Flagfin angelfish not looking hot

    image.jpgPicture is sideways.

    i just got this flagfin Angel fish and he does not look great. Been this way since noon. I also got a copper banded butterfly and flame angel they are doing great and it is a 160 gallon tank.
    The tank temp is 73.8 ph is 8.09 but I am stumped.
    Running 70 gallon sea clear II system and 15 gallon tall also a 6 gallon.

    Did you get from a fish store? How long had they had it? Was it eating at the store? Assuming you acclimated it like the other two? Sometimes they don't handle the stress very well. Hope it makes it.

    Yes I got it from a fish store. I'm not positive how long they have had it. It was eating and all were acclimated at the same way. And it looked great in the store.

    Assuming your water parameters are good there's not much you can do at this point without stressing it out even more. Just make sure nobody's picking on it.

    Anytime you move / transport a fish you take a chance of losing them, hopefully he can pull through

    Did he make it? If so, is he interested in eating at all? Maybe soak food in garlic to entice feeding response.

    You could also make sure that he is in a dark place and provide plenty of hiding places for it to feel safe and protected. I would also try to feed it with garlic or if you have any, live brine shrimp will also get the to eat as well.
