I have a 44 gallon tank with a larger angel fish and a red finned shark that's quite small, other fish that have no problems. I just cleaned my tank, I left for acouple hours. Came back and realized my red finned shark  was almost latching but looked like it was cleaning the angel fish and the angel fish didn't do anything. It looks like it's two antenna fins fell off too.. Is he sick ?

It's going to seem to you that I am asking a lot of unnecessary information but I am really not.  We will need to know what other species and quantities of fish are in with your angel and rainbow shark. 

How long has the tank been set up?

Also, how often do you change water and how much is changed each time?  Do you use a water conditioner? 

This will give us a start to get a feel for your tank.  We may or may not need to ask more questions, though.  Smiley


When in doubt, do a water change.
