    Adult male angelfish maybe 4 years old appears healthy in every way except rapid breathing and lack of appetite. He is the only fish in the tank exhibiting any signs of illness, so I doubt that it is a water conditions issue. Any thoughts on what this could be and how to treat it?

    Is the top of his head red? If so could be Hex. Treat with metronidazole. Could also be internal or external parasites, gill flukes comes to mind, but I don't know the treatment for them.
