HI Everyone,
I am a newbie with an urgent problem.
I have a 30 gallon freshwater tank (about 6 months old) with very good water parameters. All of my fish are about a quarter in body size. I have 2 blush angels, 2 discus, & a veil tail.
The tank has been a happy peaceful home for most part. A bit of sparring periodically. Three days ago one of my blushers suddenly flopped at the surface several times and then zipped madly around the tank for 3 -4 seconds. It seemed to be out of control. Between these episodes the fish seemed fine.
Yesterday the same thing happened. Today it did the same thing except except when the zipping was over the fish floated to the bottom. I saw it was still breathing so I waited and watched for a minute or so and then it got up from its side and swam away. The fish looks fine but I know it's not!

HI Kohgol,

I think your angel will be fine...my angels do a lot of odd things...One day 1 of my angels was lying on it's side, at the bottom! I thought he was dead, so I went to fish him out, turns out he was alive! Ooops! He must have been tired of swimming and was taking a rest. ;D LOL This wasn't the first time he had "played dead" but he is totally fine. They are just odd sometimes. I think your angel should be fine. Good luck!

HI kennytheshark,
Thanks for your encouragement! Actually, the angel has done just fine even though it was really freaky at the time. Today one of my discus zipped back and forth like it was in high gear. It also looks just fine. :-*

HI J Man,
Nope, no thumps or flashing lights. Yes, parameters of ph, ammonia, nitrite and nitrate are all -0-.
They are all eating well and the angel seems fine now. Go figure ???
Thanks for your reply.
