Angelfish sick or hurt with detailed photos

I just got a new tank that has a working hood so that i can actually have a light in it, and i noticed that my one angelfish has a pinkish red blotch on his back between two fins (look in the photo on top of his tail) . Could this be an illness or a physical injury from tank transfers?

I cant tell how long its been there because my other tank did not have a light so I didnt notice till now.

If you could please help identify the problem and suggest solutions, that would be great!


Also the longer that I stayed and took photos the more my angelfish became pale. Im sure this is a sign of stress but im just wondering to make sure? And is there a way to help my fish not become stressed when I go right up to the glass to take photos?

As you can see the colour change. The second photo where the fish is pale is after about 5 minutes of trying to take a decent photo. Why is my fish so stressed/pale and is there a way to fix this?

Also since i had no light from my previous tank, could that harm my fish? they had no light for a long time (less than a year though) and i know that they are supposed to have light so could that affect their health? What about since I put them from no light to light all day?

Any answers for any or all of my questions would be great, thanks
