Suicidal angel???

Last nite i did my usual weekly 50% wc, and during it, while i was removing water, my male angel, who is in a 20g with his female, started zooming around the tank and bouncing off the sides. I refilled the tank and figuring it had been due 2 low water level i went 2 bed. This morning hear him doing it again, and when i go in 2 check he has managed 2 stun himself and is floating almost upside down, breathing shallowly... i was able 2 get him out with my hands, which he has NEVER let me touch him, and put him back in the 55 he had been in before and support him near the filter where the water has more oxygen. He is doing ok now. Breathing normal, swimming around... the 55 is warmer than the 20g, could that be why?? The girl is still in the 20g as she is smaller. Normal params in both tanks. What could have made him freak out?? He is on suicide watch for now, but because the female keeps eating the eggs i want him in the 20g so they can spawn and he can raise the fry. Any input is appreciated... (side note, they had been in the 20 2 weeks, and i never once saw him eat during that time...) here is a pic of them in the 20 so ull know approximate size of the male...
