My Angel Fish is Sick cant figure it out!

I'll attach a picture of my Angel fish.
He's bent in half and doesn't swim around just kinda floats to the bottom of the tank.
PH 6.8 - 7.0 Ammonia 0 Nitrate 0 Nitrite 0
I put him in quarantine with some Aquarium salt.
All of the other fish are fine. Including my other 2 Angels.
Any ideas?

Sorry to hear about your angel. Is this a cycled tank? You should have some nitrates in a cycled tank.

How old is the tank? Can you post a picture of the fish in distress?

Looking at the page source the first time the picture didn't show up was because it was in your gmail account which won't share the photo with people not logged into your account, you last attempt looks like you tried to add it to your album here and show everyone but you might have made it a private album so the picture won't display for anyone until you make that album public(also make sure you copy the BB code line in the picture and paste it in the body of the message), or the picture is a bad format. But if you can see it I don't see why it would be in a bad format.

O.K. can you see it now? I made the folder public.
Also just an FYI fishy didn't make it but I would really like to know what caused this.
I've had the 3 angel fish for Years I'm really bummed out and hope I don't loose the other guys. Their both swimming around just fine right now but so was this guy. Whatever caused this was onset very quickly and he showed no signs of distress leading up to this, and once it happened he only probably lasted an hr.
I just observed him for a while and I cant see any visible signs of illness. He does seem to be very skinny almost like he was sucked dry from the inside. But the exterior seems fine. Maybe i'm dealing with some type of parasite?

Your going to need to repost the picture with the new BB tag info, just go into the album, go into the picture, at the bottom there should be an area that says BB code link, copy that text out and paste it right into the message body. (dont click insert image)

Edit:

I was able to get it to come up by removing the T at the end of the file name here it is(it is the correct image right?):

You have 2 chinese algae eaters? how old/big are they? i heard that as they mature they stop eating algae and become violent towards the other fish, including sucking their slime coat. Angelfish are a good target. I would consider rehoming these fish, i heard they do not play well with others. what you need is a siamese algae eater instead.

I mention this because from my google search i came up with this post:

the experts didn't seem to recognize these symptoms... their theory seems plausible.

Hmm perhaps. I know when the Chinese Algae eaters grow larger they can tend to be aggressive. My 2 guys are only about an inch long if that and are about a year old. I'll throw in some algae chips to see if that helps the situation, and monitor activity more closely.
