This morning when I turned on the lights one of my angels was lying flat on it’s side. After a few minutes he was up and swimming fine. At feeding time he ate just like normal. Should I be worried? They are my first Angels. I’ve had them for a few months and they are fairly large as you can see in my avatar.

Its certainly not normal. I would do a quick water param check and see if all good and normal, as well as just observing the fish in question - behaviour and poo. If its poo is normal abd its behaviour is fine, then I wouldn't be too concerned.

Hello, I have a couple of angels & noticed that when they sleep they stiffen up and just bob & drift around tank. So if water tested good it may have been asleep. Hope this helps!

Thanks Michael and Aussie. Parameters are good,0-0-20. He seems fine today. Guess he was just sleeping that way. They do seem to just bob around each morning when I first turn on the lights.
