It took a while..can't really recall how long but went way. I was very thankful to slow back on the rediculous water changes after that and probably mentally blocked it out because it was a lot of work to keep the water clean as I decided not to QT mine because My house was already full of 3 qt tanks with new cichlids n didn't want to start another. Long story short. My angel is fine and now much bigger and from what I can tell he is the peace keeping angel I have. Only after effects obsessing over the water quality of that tank (BTW it was always perfect water quality..just for some reason the sickness made be obsess on that )
Thanks Agent!! That makes me feel better :)

So the lights JUST came on in the 75 and his fin already has the white pimply spots going away and he is using it more. I haven't treated the water or anything yet....

I'm considering keeping a close eye on him over the next few days and if it keeps getting better I'm just going to leave him in there so I don't create any unnecessary stress. He's eating and swimming fine. I'm going to do a small water change just to make sure the water is good because the nitrate is a little higher than my tap water so that will help him feel better.

I'll keep everyone posted and I'll have a picture of it up soon so you can see it better. I want to let them eat real quick though so he can feel comfortable (I don't want to bug him)

It's almost all gone! :)

Once he is healed up for 2-3 weeks time I am going to set up the 29 and get the two angels in there to let them breed. They have been trying for so long and I want to reward them :)
