Hey all. I'm new to angels and have raised 8 from joegargas up from about dime size and saw today that 2 of them had red noses. I've seen blushing angels before and this is different. Only the tip is red. Any help is appreciated thank you.

I've seen cichlids, including angels, with red noses from digging in the substrate. Any excavation going on?

My younger ones would get that occasionally. It'll disappear with time. I think it's just from hitting the glass or one another.

The occasional rudolph is not typically an issue, but if there are several it is usually an indicator of a bacteria infection

What are you water parameters? Ammonia, Nitrite etc.

The red is gone now. Thanks for the tips. Musta been some scwabbling (spelling?)
