Also how long have you had this angelfish, and has there always been a problem with its lips or is this a new development. A couple of possiblities that I can think of off hand, one being a genetic deformity, or could possibly be lip fibroma. Also if you have other angel fish in with this one have you noticed any fighting between them, lip locking?
