    I came home today all excited to put in my new Tunze powerheads and I was met with a sad site.   My large Flame Angel that I have had for several months and has always seemed healthy was stuck to the side of one of my Modded Maxi-Jets dead.
    I pulled him out ot the tank and examined him and I didn't see any signs of disease and he wasn't thin like he hadn't been eating...  He was just dead...
    Everything else in my tank seems Happy as a clam (even my clam which is literally happy as a clam).   All of the corals seem in good shape with great polyp extension...
    Can anyone think of anything I might be overlooking?

    Sorry about the loss of the beautiful angel, JB! You have me stumped on this one. The only thing I can think of is the possibility of him eating something(dead snail or coral) he shouldn't be eating in your tank. It's weird that it appeared to be perfectly fine up until this point and die for no reason. I hope all the others stay healthy with no more losses.

    that sucks.
    all you could do it test your water perameters.
    ive seen fish get spooked and hit a rock in the tank and just die.
    ive seen fish get things stuck in theirr mouth and die.
    stomache problems.
    old age.

    You know, I do have some button polyps that used to have HUGE tips on the polpys and now it looks like those tips are gone. I wonder if the flame angel might have been eating them and got poisoned. I know that palythoa can be toxic.

    Did you add any new fish? If not, I vote for poisoning or old age.

    Fish are like people, heart attacks, old age, suicide, murder, stroke, or many other natural things

    Bummer! Do you have any anemones? Perhaps it bumped into one and was stung.
