So out of my 5 angels, i have 1 outcast. The other 4 picked on her some and now she just sits by the heater by the top of the tank looking pitiful. I have nowhere else to house her except maybe a 10 gallon snail tank :( the other 4 have completely ignored her since she started this. What is the chance she will be okay? Do i need to rehome her? Do u think it could be something else like her being sick?

Yes you should remove the fish from the tank. If it's not sick now, the stress can certainly manifest itself in some disease/sickness.

Yes, that's certainly a way it can go. It's kinda like a chicken and egg scenario - Is the fish getting picked on cause it's sick, or does it get sick as a result of being picked on....

Yeah, you know its possible. She went down quick. There were no outward appearances and everyone else in the tank is fine. Water params r fine so who knows. The other four were ruthless to her. I should have quarentined her but i thought they were just establishin thei peaking order.

It's ALWAYS best to quarantine
