looks like he had problems with his swim bladder but when my angel was internal bleeding he would be on the top of the tank like that or on the bottom he is slowly dying it looks like.

Hey guys, this fish is perfectly 'normal' (well, normal
)

His owner, Carl (Lophius), had posted similar pictures some months earlier on fishpost.com: it's just a little act of playing dead, even though that fish has found his own very special, and convincing way of doing so

Ive heard that they do tranqualize them and do a couple preparations to every P before shipping them out. Im sure that the Ps go on a fasting (not eatting) process for 2 days before they're shipped to help reduce stress.

they are tranqualized before shipping and not fed as the tranq relaxes the fish and makes them expel more waste and in bags this is bad .also this is why you should never add shipped fishes bag water to your tank
