I just had 3 of my 4 angelfish punch out recently after they developed a sort of white slime on their dorsal and anal fins. any ideas?

If by punch out you mean they died what are the tank conditions & water parameters?

If this is the 55 gal. tank you were planning on setting up in December, my first guess is a water quality issue. Do you have a liquid test kit? The slime could be any number of things.

It was actually a 50 gallon it turned out. But yes. And I discovered the problem. It was water quality. My lfs misled me about keeping them. Thanks guys

It certainly wouldn't be the first time that has happened. I am very sorry.
