Yesterday night, i noticed that he angelfish had stayed in the same spot all day. This morning, when I fed them, I noticed he looked swollen, and started looking into if he was pregnant. But from what I have read, symptoms seem to be more like dropsy. Ever since its happened, the other angelfish have gotten aggressive towards each other.

Do you have any pictures of it and are any scales pineconing or anything like that?
