  • Angelfish spitting out food - sick?

    I have a black lace angelfish who is acting pretty normal, swimming like usual, acting friendly and rushing to the top of the tank when it’s time to eat. But no matter what I feed it, it spits the food out, grabs it again, spits it out again. It has two small white spots on one pectoral fin. I thought maybe it was a bit of fin rot and tried giving it brine shrimp mixed with kanaplex and focus, but I don’t know that it’s actually ingesting the food. Am I treating with the wrong medicine? What else could be wrong with it? Thanks

    Thanks for the post, srwfish! Angelfish can be picky eaters, and even if they like the food being fed they can exhibit this behavior. If you suspect a bacterial infection such as fin rot, the KanaPlex can be dosed directly to the water column, but I would recommend quarantining the fish for treatment if possible!

    I hope this helps!
