    Hello,

    I recently purchased a 6" emperor angel that is still in QT. After a few days in QT, I noticed it develop ICK and now it is undergoing hyposalinity. However, today I noticed it pooping stringy white stuff.

    Is this internal bacteria? should I be worried? what can I do to fix?

    thx

    Adult large wild-caught Angelfishes usually don't survive long in captivity.

    The QT should be no less than 70 gallons for this fish. And the final display tank should be no less than a 300 gallon tank, with plans to upgrade to a 500+ tank in the next 2 years.
