Title: Angel fish gasping for air at the surface
Post by: Schmaltzii on June 12, 2019, 11:12:15 AM
I have a 36 gallon aquarium with three tetras, three minnows, a dwarf pleco, and one angel fish, I've had the angel fish for about a year now with no problems besides my second one suddenly dying the other day, but now my last angel fish is gasping at the surface, I have one large live plant and a small live plant in the tank and the filter adds plenty of bubbles into the tank, the water is kept at around 80 degrees and I just fed them, I don't know what I could be doing wrong.

I have figured out the problem, the nitrates were getting too high, I did a 30% water change and added an aeriation filter to help with oxygen flow, hopefully I caught it in time.
