|Is there something wrong with my Angelfish|
Subject: Is there something wrong with my Angelfish

We currently have 2 Angelfish, I assume we have a male and a female as they have laid eggs in the past.
The smaller of the 2 we think is a female, which has recently developed a sore, or possible wound from an attack off another fish near to the base of its pectoral fin, the larger Angel does appear to chase and bully the smaller one. I have attached a picture, I'm hoping this is something that will heal, and not a disease of any sort, has anyone seen this before? A local store and a friend recommended aquarium salts, which I've added today.
Any other help greatly appreciated, Lee
Some current tank stats, we have 2 Angels, 7 Guppies, 4 Dwarf Gourami, and a Bristlenose Pleco
Tank size 90L
Temp 76 F
We only have artificial plants, I change around 30L of water every 5 days to keep the Nitrate down using a syphon also to clean the poo from the substrate, often adding some bicarbonate of soda to new de-chlorinated water as we live in a soft water area, every couple of days I use a gravel cleaner to keep the tank clean.
