    My big, beautiful rescue angel has died. I've been expecting this, he's been going downhill gently for a while, but I'm still sad. I don't think I'm going to try to get Eddy another partner, there are just too many risks with angelfish and I was darned lucky it worked out between these two! RIP Colin.

    Here's video I captured of him doing his "trick" when he's hoping for live mosquito larvae:

    Sorry for your loss & thanks for sharing the video. You cared for him and that shows. Even when you know you won't have much time left with them it still doesn't seem to make it any easier when they are gone. Take care!

    Thanks everyone. It's still weird to only see Eddy begging at the corner of the tank when I wake up in the morning but she seems fine by herself and I don't want to introduce another Angel and risk them not getting along. The temptation is definitely there though and I find myself looking at the Angels in pet shops and trying to pick "the one". Colin really was special.

    He sound great and that video was adorable! He was a good angel and that why he was called an angelfish for a reason, I'm so sorry :(

    Sorry he's gone- he may be the last loop the loop Angel we ever see. :( And congrats on the noob. Maybe he'll be as talented.

    Is that the proper name for this colour?

    Won't know for sure unless it pairs up and breeds but that's not likely to happen. Sorry!
