I think your description of whirling disease fits my Angelfish. I just lost a whole batch of swordtails to the swim bladder infection that you mentioned, so it is possible that the angel got it from the swords, but the angel is not showing any of the same symptoms that the swords demonstrated (sinking to the bottom, bent spines, white feces, fin rot, etc.).

I am certain that when I turn the light on this morning that he will be dead, so I will remove him so that it won't spread. At least I still have one angelfish left!

the problem with internal parasitic and bacterial infections is that they don't always show the same. They may infect different areas and may cause secondary infections. For instance, you mentioned bent spines which is often common of tuburculosis in fish. It's a bacterial infection that doesnt always cause swim bladder infections. However, bacterial infections can cause the swim bladder wall to thicken and/or harden which would cause swim bladder disorders. So, they dont always have to show the same exact symptoms for the same disease.
