Hi everyone!

My two angels have been shaking their fins lately. Is this okay? Or is it a bad sign?

Any help would be great!

Thanks

Hi,

A while back they formed a pair. I don't think it's dominance thing.

Any other ideas why they are shaking their fins. Could it be a disease??

Hi,

I just saw my one of my angels shake, and her body was shaking too. Could they be trying to shake something off their body??? Off topic, but does fin rot make fish shake??

most of the time though when they have external parasites they flash against rocks, wood,etc. Are your angels flashing any or are they just shaking....my discus shake their fins at each other as sign of dominance

Hi,

Their shaking, not flashing. I've seen them do courtship displays and dominance things, but this is different. They just randomly shake their fins, especially their caudal fin. It looks like they are trying to shake something off. They have been doing this for the last couple of weeks, but before then they never did it.
