I rescued 2 angel fish in December from pets at home. They were small (2cm not inc fins) and cowering in the corner of a tank of gold barbs. Both added to main tank after 10/7 in quarantine.
One has grown, and joins the scrum at feeding times. Clyde however hasn't grown. He had an episode of white stringy poo and has only just got back out of quarantine after a Course octozin.
Hes very shy around the other fish and I find myself having to quickly drop food down to him whilst the others are eating on other side of tank. But to be honest he has never been a good eater (he does love blood worms and mosquito larvae)
I just found him with his little beak stuck in one of the fenestrations on my filter intake. I gently eased him out and he swam around a bit then seemed to deliberately swim back to the same sorry situation. One time he swam sideways past it and I saw him get sucked sideways onto it.
He is now in a breeder net chillaxing and munching on a blood worm. I feel he is trying to earn a Darwin award! I've turned lights off and in gonna leave him there overnight.
My worry is the flow in my tank is quite low and my other healthier angelfish bonnie can swim right near the intake with ease. Anyone had any similar experiences?
