Angelfish haemorrhage?

562 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  sewingalot
It's not pretty. One of my young angelfish looks like some of his insides have come out his rectum (for want of a more elegant description).

I'm guessing it could be a result of overfeeding - this one is very aggressive and tends to feed much more heavily than the others - but I don't really know.

Has anyone seen this before? What's the prognosis?

This post describes exactly the problem (oddly the angelfish in the picture has identical markings and size..).

I'll just isolate the guy in a breeding net and starve him for a few days.
Glad you found the answer. Let us know how he does.
