I don't think its swimmers bladder.

Is he a new addition? Do the other angels pick on him?

I have an angel that gets fairly stressed out a lot of the time for varius reasons, sometimes ite because I added a new plant where as others its because I forgot to do a water change.

Most of the time when I have a fish thats acting "strange" I will check the water parameters and then do a waterchange. If I just recently did a waterchange I would add my water conditioner that will help remove any  of the metals that maybe stressing the fish out.

If he is getting bullied by the other angelfish, there isn't a hole lot that you can do. You might just need to remove him
