So I decided to put in half a cube of ocean nutrition Pygmy angel formula and to my surprise I think she rather enjoyed it. At first she took a few pecks at it then she started really going at the cube ripping it apart. I did notice that she seemed to prefer the smaller floating pieces of the food then the big block she'd go for every floating bit taking it in then spitting it out. I'm guessing to make the bits smaller hopefully she did eat it which I'm presuming so as there's hardly any left. Also to my surprise I believe she may of eaten a few nls pellets

This is a easy to care for and long lived little fish. He will not like any other angles that are shaped or colored like him.

Hey guys. So today I performed a water change and about an hour after I noticed my coral beauty was breathing heavy. I thought this may be due to stress so I turned off all the lights. I'm starting to worry as I don't know why he maybe be doing this. I tested the water after the water change and these were the results:

ph: 8.0
Ammonia: 0
Nitrite:0
Nitrate: 0
Phosphate: 0
Temp: 25.5
Salinity: 1.022 (my Lfs keeps there fish at around 1.020 - 1.021 so I acclimate them to a lower salinity in qt and slowly raise it)
Alkalinity: at least 8.5dkh

I'm completely stumped as to why the sudden change he's always been so curious swimming around breathing fine. But now he's breathing heavy and is in the top corner.

Well, the after water change numbers are good, but if it was showing signs of stress the before would have been what could have told you the issue at hand if it was a parameter issue. If you are testing for 0 nitrates though, parameters aren't the cause of what you are describing.
Have you witnessed any bullying behavior from other tank mates? How about frayed fins? In my 55, the coral beauty was going toe to toe for some time establishing it's territory once it entered the tank. The same goes for any fish, they all need such, and if there are other aggressive fish in the tank it is quite possible that it is stress from bullying.

The numbers before the water change are:
pH: 8
Ammonia: 0
Nitrite: 0
Nitrate: 0
Alkalinity: 7.5
Temp: 25.5
Salinity: 1.021

And that is 25.5 degrees Celsius!

Breathing hard generally means a gill problem, low oxygen or a irritant to the gill membranes. Accidentally allowing chloramine into the water using tap can cause a problem like this. Also high ammonia levels.
