How big is the tank? How old? What's your maintenance routine?

150 Gallon tank. Had it for 5 years no issue. Water parameters all good. 7.4 ph. The angel gill one side look stuck but then they ate working and stuck again. They do have some white spot on it. They are all 3 in a corner not really moving but go up and eat. I notice this after my 3 bala sharks die in one day today.

I got 2 baby koi about 3 weeks ago and new plants 2 weeks ago. A new more powerful filter which I put all the old media in it. Beside that just normal water changes. The tank is 5 years old. Parameters are perfect with a 7.4 ph. Let me take more pictures. I got like 30 bristlenose plecos which were born in my tank so I donít wanna treat with anything that can harm them.

The fish look very still. Angel fish sometimes both gill are working. Other only one. And they look damage. Or like some dots.
