I have a pair of angelfish in my 55 gallon. They are quite young, and appear very happy, healthy and greedy
I love them to bits, but recently I have noticed that their fins are being nipped by something.
The two most likely culprits are probably my Bleeding hearts or rummynose tetras. Both have adequate shoals, and I have seen one or two rummies ganging up on an angelfish
Other fish in the tank are: Bolivian rams, ottos, cory cats and honey gouramis.
Their anal fin has been nipped on both of them and one has a nip out of his/her tail. Could it be the other angelfish in both cases? Could they just be "Playing" or "fighting".
The bleeding hearts are very placid, and scared of their own shadow
I have seen one nip one at feeding time, but that is the only time either have shown any agression towards each other.
Could the nipped fins get infected etc? Could it be a problem?
Which are the most likely culprits?
