Not sure what is going on with angelfish or how to treat. His mouth is staying open and seems to be deteriorating around his mouth. I had a cardinal with his mouth open like this about a month or two ago and wouldn’t close. Seemed to be dying so I put him down as humanly as I could. Not sure what to do now, just upset and freaking out. Thanks for any help!
