    Hi I just received a large new angel fish from a friend about a week ago and just today he started swimming face down into the rocks in the corner of the tank. I fed the fish in the tank to see if it would interest him, but he just continues to swim down. I'm not sure what todo please help.

    It looks like something's wrong with his swim bladder, do you know the parameters of your aquarium? (Ammonia, Nitrite, Nitrate)

    I agree that it could be something with the swim bladder.

    But, sadly, in my experience nose down is a sign of Nitrite poisoning as well.

    What are the h2o stats?
