    Hello i have a red angler fish and this week he has not been eating much which i figured was cause he wasnt hungry. Well i came home today and found him floating around the top of the tank breathing heavy and swimming upside down.... obviously not good signs.

    I have been doing 5 gallon water changes each day to help with an ich problem i have been having, the angler has not shown any signs of this. But earlier today i noticed that it seemed like there was a cloudy film over the anglers eyes and it seemed like he was shedding???? Any help would be great searching online i wasnt able to find much about these guys.

    Thanks ill check that out. But my angler didnt pull through. He died maybe an hour after he started breathing heavy. I still wanna figure out what possibily went wrong.
