flame angel is dying
« on: April 23, 2018, 17:46:38 »
i purchased a flame angel over the weekend the fish was eating and swimming from day one.   3 days later he is laying on his side. I checked on the tank before I took off for work and he was cruising the reef cam home and laying on his side but breathing.  Water is spot on.  Is it possible that my fox face might a spiked him?

Weeks after he died velvet ripped through the tank it was either that or  a small ammonia spike while adding fish. Iíve read they are very sensitive to ammonia

Yeah, Ammonia is considered to be one of the worst killers of fish out there.
