swim bladder disease?
So one of my four angelfish, a vail half black is having an issue? It is staying in one corner of the tank behind a plant near the bottom of the tank and is swimming in place completely vertical (like when it feeds from the surface of the water). When I come close or another angel comes close it swims away or nips at the other angel. What is the issue? Maybe swim bladder disease? ASAP help is needed!!! thanks

That doesn't sound anything like swim bladder disease. Can you please list the stats on this tank?
water params for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate, pH
water temp
how long the tank has been set up
sizes of the fish... what other fish are in the tank? (please list species and how many of each)
what type of filtration (make/model)
light cycle (how long on/off)
what types and how much decor in the tank (photos help alot)
Everything you can tell us about this tank is important for us to help you diagnose the problem. The more info you can provide the faster we can help.
