    So is the angel in my avatar a male?

    Welcome to the forum.

    While it is possible that is a male angel, we'd need better pictures to make a determination. Can you post side views, including the fins? Or, a short video?

    The severum and gourami are going into a different tank soon.

    I'd say you have a male; but his fins are in sad shape. Not sure if the others are aggressive towards the angel or not, or if there is disease in the tank.

    Thank you. I will be removing the severum and gourami tomorrow. How long will it take to know if his fins are in bad shape due to aggression or disease?

    Do a couple extra water changes to keep the tank pristine. You will know in a few days if the fins begin to heal or not.

    I moved the severum to a 30 gal. tank. The gourami is going the pet store to be traded.

    getting more cory catfish.

    Good luck and best wishes with your lovely boy! I'll keep my fingers crossed for you that it's not disease and that the others were just picking on him, so he'll heal up quickly!

    My angelfish is getting better. It is in the 55 gal. with (1) med angel, (1) gourami and (5) cory cats. The severum is in a tank with (2) cory cats.

    That's good news. Now you know that some of your fish don't play nice with each other.
