    Looks like the beginning of a prolapse.

    Can you give more info?

    Tank size and tank mates?

    Water parameters (pH, temp, ammonia, nitrites, nitrates)?

    A 20 gal tall is too small for an angel - 29 gal minimum.

    You really need to know nitrites and nitrates too.

    How often do you do water changes and how much do you change?

    If it's a prolapse, there's not much you can do besides frequent large water changes and light feeding.
