ive been noticing at night one of my angelfish have been making some noise, he will pop his mouth out of the water and suck up some air and shoot it out his gills. is this normal? should i be concerned? or is he just playing?. its mainly at night, sometimes during the day. im assuming hes playing, or likes the feeling, but i just want to make sure its not a sign of something i should correct, or give him in anyway.

yeah thats what kind of worry's me right now, the filter is pretty strong and moves the water but its a submergable filter, with a ghetto spray bar attached to the out-take. so it doesnt agitate the water like a h.o.b filter would.

heres a pic of the set up to get a better visual idea.

yeah i know what your saying about them staying at the top in distress, they go everywhere and usually dont just stay at the top, it was hard to figure out at first what the angels where doing but late last night i was watching them and noticed the one black one doing it, he sticks his mouth out and then shoots air out of his gills fast. im not sure if they all are, but i saw only the one doing it for a while
