one of my angelfish was acting slow and lazy for the past week and yesterday i saw my two silver dollars attacking it! they jumped out of the water and got dove back in and attacked it! also they took off its tail an eye and half of its body :( nasty right!? well i only saw when the silver dollars were staring at it and they nipped it a couple times but i thot that was nothing.but then my mom told me that she saw them attacking it.she wasnt gonna save it cause it was gonna die anyway it wasnt breathing right and its fins were falling apart. tell me what u think of this blahh!!

oh and it died duhh lol

MY TANKS:

36 GALLON- PLECO, 2 CORIES, ANGELFISH, 2 SILVER DOLLARS,FLY FOX

what are you water parameters? when you say changed your tank around....what all did you move around? if you changed out all your gravel, you might have caused a mini-cycle.....

so, what did you change exactly and what are the parameters?

i changed around all the plants and stuff and i did a 75 percent water change cause the water was filthy and i havent did the w/c in a while cause ive been very busy.but they r all acting wierd even my fry! i didnt change the gravel just the plants and i added something new.i added a breeders net to put the small fry in which r about 10 and the rest r in the tank which r about 16 but i might just release all of them cause the adults dont seem to mind now.

Hmm something is off I'd say...

I have a planted tank, do WC's when I can (between every 1-3 weeks) and I never gravel vac- My tanks never been "filthy". Do you mean algae or detritus (poop)

+1 about the water results.
you've stirred it all up,and the fish are reacting to it.
how sad about the poor angel fish.

when you set up a new tank,hide an extra
sponge or two behind some decor,that way you have
something seeded for you next filter.

how big is the tank?
And you can keep platies and guppies together you know...

You mean the 5G?
well you know you're only supposed to have 1 male for every three females... right?
The males are "sexing" the females to death.
