I have a 55g with a coral beauty angel

I have a 55g with a coral beauty angel. We moved it across the room about 4 feet last night....very carefully! Now my Angel is acting funny and I'm worried we are going to lose her. Should I be prepared for the worst?

What is acting funny mean? What are your levels? Did you disturb any rock in your tank? Might have released stuff out of your sandbed or stirred up the buildup around your LR.

Nevermind....shortly after that post I lost her :-( Our levels are almost perfect...it was a little cloudy last night nut cleared up beautifully shortly after we got the tank settled in its new spot. Repeated it this morning and everything was dine except the salt was a little higher then we normally keep it. Not having any other issues out of the other fish though. Thank god because I do believe I wouldn't be able to handle it!

I'd assume that the move kicked up a ton of nasty stuff and caused a spike in ammonia and started a mini cycle.

Also if you don't have critters that stir up the sandbed, toxic gasses can build up which could have been released. That is, if you don't have any digging critters.

To be quite honest, I'm not sure for a Saltwater tank. But the same thing can be achieved by stirring the sand with a skewer. The only problem with that is, you could cause a little water cloudiness or kick sand up into your filter, potentially harming the impeller. I know that snails can burrow in the sand and clean it, and I believe some wrasse species burrow into the sand to sleep? But I'm not sure. I'm sure someone else will chime in here. You could even Google it

But like I said, if the sand never gets moved, toxic gasses will build up. Then if it does get stirred up somehow, they will be released.
