Sick Coral Beauty Angelfish. PLEASE HELP!!

I came down to look at my tank today, and my Coral Beauty Angel is swimming sideways at the top of the tank with what sorta looks like a webbing around her/him. I don't know what happened, just last night it was swimming perfectly fine. I also kinda new at this, so any help is needed. My dad thinks it is going to die today, so this is URGENT! For fish in there I have: 2 three stripe damsels, 2 blue damsels, Foxface Rabbitfish, teardrop Butterfly, 2 ocellaris clownfish, a sharknose goby, and a turbo snail. HELP!!

All you can really do is take him out and set up a QT tank. Watch him closely. Its hard for us to give you a good answer to help with fish with the info provided. Can you list your paramaters and maybe a picture of the fish would be helpful.

Good luck and keep your fingers crossed and hope he makes it out ok.

Not sure what you mean by webbing.

Well I guess it wasn't really webbing, it was more like a dry fish in water, like he wasn't wet. I feel so bad because he/she didn't make it, aslo a Blue Damsel. I hope at least no one else dies, hope for the best.

Sorry for the loss. What size is the tank? How long has it been set up?

What are the current parameters? Sounds like high nitrates maybe.

Yeah, if two fish have died, something is going on and I would not think that more will not follow if the cause is not found. You've got some nice fish there. Water parameters would be a good start...

Any corals? The acans throw a webbing to snare fish that get to close

My Saltwater is a 55 gallon with dead coral and a fake coral piece from petsmart, and it has been up for about 1 1/2 months. I tested the water and found out that the nitrates and nitrites were high, so I got a treatment to help fix that. The pH and Ammonia in the tank were at the right levels. I'm not geting anymore fish until I'm 100% positive that no one else is going to die and the parameters are back in order.

If you have any nitrites at all, there is a major problem. How was the tank cycled? I recommend doing water changes every day.
