    Good day all, my Yellow Angel took a turn this morning for no apparent reason. My tank has been running for over 8 months with no losses, and just tested parameters which all seem to check out. The Angel started acting up yesterday where he kept swimming in 1 specific area of the tank (in line with the powerhead flow) and did not move the whole day.
    My wife picked this up and said something was wrong, of which everything seemed fine as he was still swimming freely, just not moving from the spot. His gills looked exceptionally red which we could see through the yellow of his body, but this was the only indication something was wrong.
    Today he is on his way out and cannot seem to swim and is simply lying around breathing very heavily. I placed him in the sump after the Flame Angel began attacking his once he took a turn. Any ideas? Do I remove him before he dies? Do I move my fish? Do I treat the tank? If so, what treatment? I will appreciate any feedback or advice.
    Thanks.
    My stock is:
    2 Cleaner shrimp
    2 Flame Goby's
    2 Orange Spot Gobies
    2 Clown
    6 Chromis
    1 Regal
    1 Flame
    1 Tang (Browny color - but close up has nice white speckles)
    1 Anenome
    2 Pincushions
    640 l tank
    200l sump
    Skimmer rate for 1500l.
