Angelfish die
It all started about a week ago. I noticed a white coating ( like velvet) on my angelfish and they where breating heavy and then they started dying off one by one. About 2 weeks ago, I bought 2 new Koi Angelfish, some plants, 1 Neon Blue Dwarf Gourami and a sailfin molly. Them four fish died first and then my other angelfish stared to die. About one every two days. Know of the 8 angelfish I had, one is still alive in a 20Gal sick tank. So I tried buying a new angelfish and it also died, but the rest of the fish in this tank seem fine. Does anybody know something that would affect only angel's? One pet store told me that angelfish aids was killing all of the angels in the farms.

Ammonia 0.00 ppm
Nitrate 160 ppm
Nitrite always 0
PH always around 7.2
GH 300ppm very hard
KH 180ppm

55 Gal. Freshwater Under Ground Filter(power heads), XP2 FilStar Canister Filter.

3 Sailfin Molly
2 Black Angel fish still alive
3 cory catfish all alive
2 Neon Blue Dwarf Gourami
1 Dinosaur bichir 3"

No. 160 is very high and deadly for fish.:wink2:

Scotty, I'd recommend you carry out large water changes and add more plants like Elodeas and Hornworts to eliminate the nitrates.

Pls test your tapwater for nitrates.
