Angelfish are more sensitive than some other types of aquarium fish. If they are gasping for air at the top or if their fins are clamped, something is wrong. Was the aquarium completely cycled before you added the angelfish? You can tell by measuring for ammonia and nitrite; both should be zero. Angelfish need lots of room, and they prefer water at about 82 degrees. When introducing them to a new aquarium, the drip acclimation method works best.
