i could send you one for an autopsy...i have an extra fish...lol....actually, two have since died...and i have two left, my original large angel, and a small new addition. there was a size difference between ONE of the angels...and the other three...the three were small. there is a LOT of plant coverage in my tank, so much i can hardly find them sometimes...so i know that wasnt the issue..the were acclimated on different days...i brought one "batch" or two fish, of angels home sometime last week and i acclimate them for about 30 minutes, letting them float in the main tank and then adding water from the tank every 5-10 minutes. one of the fish from the first batch died a couple of days ago...so i took it back to the store and brought home the "second batch" or 2 more fish, leaving a grand total of 4 angelfish in my tank. i figured the 2nd batch i brought home would do fine because i talked to the woman at the pet store (some family owned place and theirs tanks were immaculate) and she said that she had had those two fish for over 2 weeks, so i thought they would live. as soon as i got them home i noticed the striped one was hiding in the corner alot (i thought due to stress of a new environment, etc) and when she finally came out i noticed she was having trouble swimming, and then i put her in a hospital tank where i raised the temp and added a little melafix and salt, and she died. ThEN i noticed that one of my other angels (from the FIRST batch) started swimming funny and hiding, and i came in and found him on the filter. so i have two left, and they seem to be doing fine...i am going to take a water sample in today and ask for it to be done with the liquid master kit, which i dont have...anyways...any guesses?
