About Me

  1. Hi, I'm Jawjagrrl, and I have MTS. A little background to kick off this journal. Fish and cats were part of my parents household before I was. Dad had a rack of the old chrome tanks in their LR in the early 60s - I was born into the hobby. I still have his much stained copy of Axelrod's fishes. I ogled fish tanks in public any place we saw them, like the local fish restaurant that had tanks of wild oscars in the early 70s. Fast Forward to the 90s - I got my first tanks, two 55s stocked with african cichilds (even sold babies to the LFS!) and my beloved oscars, sevrum, and silver dollars. I had a NERM pal at work that agreed to build me a custom stand so the two 55s could be displayed together and he did a great job. But the home I bought soon after was too small for this setup and it went into storage.... ...for a long time. I left academia and moved south, got married. Jawjagrrl is what my northern friends said when teasing me about my choice to head down near the end of the Appalachian Trail (NE Georgia) in 2010. Life happened. So now it's 2022, I live on a farm started by my late in-laws in the 80s. I have chickens, a small market garden (organic), preserve food I grow, make soap... basically all the things that I made fun of as an academic before. I embraced dogs and have 4 rescues. Having reached my Patient Spouse's likely limit on rescued cats, dogs and chickens 😉 the idea of starting up fish again took hold. I had a nano tank on my desk at a marketing job in 2015, and one of the cardinal tetras in it lived to be 4 years old. Also my first attempt at a plant, which lasted 3 of those years. Last summer I started getting sucked in by nano tanks and aquascaping, which wasn't really that much of a thing in the 90s, plus my fish ate plants and preferred rocks. I started binging channels on YT like GreenAqua, MJ Aquascaping, MD fish tanks, Prime Time Aquatics and of COURSE Aquarium COOP. There are now two 5gal portrait setups, my old office 2.5gal, a cheapie 3gal QT and my secret scape from scraps entry in progress. These are taken before weekly maintenance, but I promised myself I'd post this before anything else got done today! But while small fish, shrimp, etc., was scratching the itch, I still dreamt of those 55s in the basement. But I didn't want to surpass my Patient Spouse Limit and dreamed and planned. The Endor tank above was setup for him after considering a lot of ideas, and despite the AT-AT deco not exactly being natural, it's a household favorite setup. All the wood and mosses are from the farm and it's happily housing endlers, kuhlis, shrimp and a mellow texan crayfish named Gomez (A Morticia could be a future project). So here is the stand, currently in the back basement (awesome potential for a fish room should MTS continue). My friend did a good job on a basic form that did work well for the short time I had it set up. It was intended to be trimmed out by me once I had a home that warranted it and could be designed to compliment. This setup will be in the front room of a house designed as a 1690s Massachusetts salt box house (in Georgia, yes). All the finish carpentry is heart pine reclaimed from an old mill in south Georgia, which we can match with materials left over. I'll definitely be seeking input from all of you about dos/dont's, but it needs to look nice as these are definitely display tanks in the room where we spend the most down time. The tanks will be behind the sofa and extend a bit beyond either end. 8 feet of tank on a 13' wall should make for an impressive display. My vision for these tanks is to create a generally South American setup, but not strictly biotope or 100% SA species. We love the idea of congo tetras as the tetras for the bigger fish we want to keep (husband wants angels, I want geophagus tapajos). The hardscape focal point will be a foraged stump from the property that is split in half (technically quadrants so they have a flat surface to snug against the back glass) and placed against the inside ends of the two tanks, creating the illusion of one long 8ft space. Below is a quick mashup of images to give you an idea of what we're aiming for. We have a woodshop, lots of wood, rock, streams and woodland plants and mosses to use, so what could go wrong...? 😉 Every journey begins with a modest first step, so mine is showing you the tanks until recently, living in the mudroom and looking forlorn (and dog-haired): I see sad betta cups from the 2010s... and plastic plants! 😮 They held water as recently as 2009. Will the seals still be good? We shall see..... If you're still with me, great! Moving forward, I'll need input on lots of things that are still new to my aquaria experience on this scale in future updates, like: hardscape/substrate - aquasoil capped with river sand? something else? live plants are a must. plants - I've done ok with the basics you've seen in my nano setups, but this is much more ambitious. CO2 or no? more on that and our water parameters to come fish selection - Patient Spouse deserves input, and he wanted angels. I want geos. I see one tank housing the bigger fish with friends like congo tetras, cories, pleco and the other side for things too small for adult angelfish like neos, other tetras, etc. filtration - I've ruled out past options I did with the 55s before - no HOBs or undergravel. Sponges? Maybe, but these are display tanks. Canisters or sump? Never used either but willing to learn. Pros/cons of running one system for both tanks? background - build a 3d? nothing at all? black? frosted white? backlit? so many choices! lighting - The biggest changes in tech since the 90s for sure. I can certainly do better than the old tube fluorescents I had back then. I need new tops too. I doubt we'll hang lights as these will be right behind the sofa where I hang out and don't want to feel interrogated at night. My journal is a couple of steps behind where the project actually is. I have procrastinated starting this for some reason - perhaps posting it makes it and all the potential mistakes feel more real? But with support from the amazing knowledge base of the NERMs here, I know we can avoid a few of those.
  2. I currently have two threads for both of my aquariums, but I've been thinking that its time to merge the two threads together My current tanks are my Community tank (40 Gallons): Home to: Angelfish, Cardinal Tetras x5, Bristlenose Pleco, Upside down Catfish x2, Zebra Danios x6. Its Planted with: Anubias Nanna, Crypt Wendetii Red, Red Twist Sword, Hygrophiliia Siamensis 53B, My second tank is my Betta Tank (5 Gallons): Its home to: Hugo the Betta, 5 Neon Tetras, and a new addition (more on that below!) Its planted with: Hygrophillia Compact, Hygrophillia Siamensis, Two Species of Anubias, Buce, Red Melon Sword, Little Side Note: Hugo had gone through some Finrot Treatments, his fins are still growing back. I'm also working on a new tank to go below the community tank, hoping to get some supplies for it and to get it up and running! Today I went driving and drove past a petstore, so naturally I had to stop. I picked up a Nirite Snail for the Betta Tank. I want names for this little guy so comment some suggestions! Also just a quick questions. Does this look like a baby nirite? It seems unlikely due to the fact that they only breed in brackish, but what elese could it be? It moves and has the antennas like a snail too. I picked up the snail to add it in so I'm not sure how it could have come into the tank. Unless it came in in one of my plants, but the last time I added a plant was maybe three weeks, and I'm only noticing it now. So maybe we'll need two names, thats exciting! The baby will probably end up in a different tank soon, 5 gallons is probably too small for two snails.
  3. Don’t have any good freshwater stores around me. Looking at getting a new tank and getting a pair of angels. Aqua Huna and Aquatic arts are sold out. Does anyone else have reputable website to get them on.
  4. Hello fellow mates, keep zebrafish and angelfish in tank, but sometimes, zebrafish will open the mode - the hunt mode, and angelfish can't get much more food, what can I do to keep the balance of them?
  5. I’ve posted a bit here and there about my plans, so skim if you want. I just decided I might as well start laying it all out since this is going to be a couple months process at least. I’ve mentioned and posted a couple pics already about getting a free 100 gallon tank from friends that wanted out of the hobby. This is going to be my angelfish tank instead of the 46 gallon bow front I was originally planning to use. The 46 G tank/stand is sold since the 100 G will be in its place and I just don’t have another spot for a tank and honestly, never really liked the bow front anyway with its skinny front glass piece that made it hard to work inside it. The 100 G will be much better for angels, easier to scape, and much easier to work in, too. The stand needed a bit of touch up so I’ve been working on that, painted it yesterday, and it’s set up tonight with the tank in place. HOB’s are on the tank (not running), I have sponge filters in buckets staying alive and have extra sponge filters I can squeeze into the tank when I’m finally ready to fill the tank. One heater is ready to plug in once filled with water, another is ordered. 3 lights are ready, another is going to get ordered as soon as they’re back in stock. First, I’m waiting for the silicone bumper gaskets on the magnets to cure - see this post for more detail about the small magnet adventure. Once I know for sure the combo of inside and outside magnets are going to hold the wood up adequately (I’m pretty sure they will), I’ll paint a moss slurry on the wood with some Fissidens geppii, which should make a spectacular moss cover on my branches if I can get it to grow. I picked this moss because some kind of Fissidens is found nearly everywhere and I did finally find some references to some species of Fissidens growing in South America. The only other moss commonly found in the trade I could confirm for South America was Christmas moss and it grows way too fast and unruly for what I wanted. So Fissidens it is, even though geppii isn’t from South America. 😝 A dry start should hopefully take about 3-4 weeks. I haven’t decided yet if I’ll add substrate and hard scape at the beginning of the dry start, or wait until the dry start is done. I’m leaning toward substrate and hard scape in at the beginning. Then I’ll gradually add water to see if my moss will stick and hopefully get it comfy with submerse growth. Then I’ll be doing the rest of the planting with primarily swords (I have 5 varieties/species +/- a couple I haven’t decided on yet, plus a few other plants like Lilaeopsis brasiliensis that I’m going to tuck into gaps on the base/origin of the branches to help reinforce the “stream bed margin with washed out roots” effect I’m trying to achieve. I’m planning to try some Alternanthera reineckii ‘Roseafolia’ which some say is easier to grow. I will be adding scuds and blackworms to see if I can get colonies established before fish go in the tank. Once plants are well established and I’m certain the tank is cycled and ready, I’ll be adding fish. I’m hoping to find some giant hatchetfish. If I can’t, I’ll go for silver hatchetfish. I’m hoping to breed some orange laser cories but have had some losses after coming out of QT. I think it might be the spawning mop I made. When I got this 100 G, it came with a single sterbai cory and a single trilineatus cory (AKA false Julii). These 2 species are too closely related to keep together without risking hybridization. I’ll get groups to go along with my singletons, but I don’t want hybrids so the groups will be split between each of the 100 G tanks. The trilineatus group will go in the nano fish 100 G with my bronze cories (shouldn’t interbreed). The sterbais will go in this tank with the angels, hatchets, and hopefully orange laser cories (which should not hybridize with the sterbais). The tank also came with a single, very beat up and scarred, silver angelfish. I’m working at getting him/her healed up and back to better health, but I think it’s going to be a long road. S/he is missing just over half the right pectoral fin down below the “nub” point and it doesn’t seem to be growing anything back. All other fins are growing back, this one isn’t. The other pectoral fin has way too much pink and a bit of swelling around the base and I think s/he may have Lymphocystis and may not ever be able to go in the main angel tank. Overall, I’m very excited about a new tank and looking forward to seeing how it develops. I’ve got a few things yet to line up and sort out, but I’ve got plenty of time to get it done. This is going to be a slow, drawn out build thread so have patience and check back periodically. Pics: 1. Magnets “social distancing” while silicone bumper gaskets cure. 2. The wood laying in the tank until I can epoxy the magnets into place. 3. Stand is painted. 4. Dry and ready to come inside. 5. Tank and stand in place. 6. Tank only, focused on the wood construction. The slate on the left has magnets epoxied to it and will be held in place (hopefully) with magnets on the outside.
  6. Forewarning, this is going to be a long post as I've been dealing with this since last Friday. Any and all advice is very much welcomed as I'm not sure how to go forward and rid my tank of whatever is currently plaguing it and my fish. So I've been dealing with an issue with my main aquarium and I could use some advice. Friday of last week, March 18th I switched out my display 29 gallon aquarium that houses my angelfish and bristlenose pleco with a brand new 29. I used new sand and gravel as well as added in some large river stones, I of course kept the same plants, driftwood, and of course all of my filtration. I dosed Prime, Stability, and Safeguard to help with the move as I knew it would be stressful. While I was exchanging tanks, I kept my angelfish and pleco in a 5 gallon bucket with one of the sponge filters running in the meantime, both were fine in their temporary quarters while I got their home in order. Later that day, I added them to the new 29 gallon. I noticed they were acting a little off with their breathing, and kept monitoring the tank throughout the remainder of the day. On March 20th, I was getting weird bubbles forming at the top of the tank in the corner where the sponge filter was. They weren't breaking like they usually would when they hit the surface, they were more so sort of gathering together. I did a 90% water change, redosed all the same seachem products and added carbon (carbon was added more as a precaution, and still is in the tank). At that time, I was checking water parameters daily (and still am) and my ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate all read in at 0ppm. March 21st I still had no reading on my cycle, but March 22nd I started reading in at 5ppm while still maintaining 0ppm for both nitrite and ammonia. On March 22nd I also performed a 30% water change. I ended up removing the new river stones as well, in case they may have introduced something to the tank (just out of a random guess). Still from March 23rd to even today, I'm reading at 0ppm for both ammonia/nitrite and reading 5ppm for nitrate. I'm assuming during the tank move I either crashed/stalled my cycle, but now that I've got it back I'm not sure what else to do about my fish. My angelfish still seems like she's having issues, she's only calm when the lights are off so the majority of the past couple of days I have left the lights off. My crypts in the tank are melting back, I figured that would happen given recent events (I'm not concerned about losing my plants, I just want my fish to be okay). The bubbles from the sponge filters are still a little odd like they have been previously and haven't really changed any at all. I guess I'm asking is what should I do next? I'm just stumped. My pleco for the most part is acting fine, it's just that my angelfish still seems like she's very stressed from her breathing and irregular behaviors since the tank move and even today (almost a week later). I don't want to lose either of them, I've had my pleco for about 8 years since she was a baby and my angelfish almost 2 1/2 years. I've still been dosing daily Seachem Prime, Stability, and Stress Guard. Carbon is still in the tank as well. The water has never once been cloudy during this issue. Attached below are photos from the past week of everything. The top two photos are from March 18th when I swapped the old 29 with the brand new one. The second set of photos are from March 20th, showing the gathering bubbles and how they wouldn't break off as normal. This standalone picture was from March 22nd from when I was doing my 30% water change to show the gathering bubbles from the hob filter. This picture above shows the test results from today, March 24th with ammonia and nitrite still being at 0 and the nitrate still at 5ppm. This final picture shows the 29 gallon aquarium today, March 24th, bubbles still the same with my angelfish still being very shy and stressed.
  7. So I am unsure/curious about this. My grandma set up a new tank about three months ago for her angelfish and recently began trying to add more. They all came from the same pet store and of the four total she bought only one survived. Of the first two, one had notable deformities and died within a few days because it couldn't swim properly and kept ramming into the tank walls. While the last two she purchased a few days ago, along with two silver dollars for the same tank and a goldfish for her goldfish tank. The silver dollars and the goldfish are doing perfectly well, but the two angelfish died the next day. She tried to get a refund for the angelfish and the pet store had her bring in some tank water to be tested. According to them, there's 0ppm of ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate in her tank. The employee said the fish died because her tank is too clean and that there's no nitrogen cycle going on. The tank water does get cloudy very quickly, but I'm pretty sure that's because my grandma has a tendency to overfeed. That being said, I'm pretty new to the hobby so I don't know much about the nitrogen cycle beyond the basics. My grandma is very discouraged and might stop keeping angelfish. The thing is, she's been successful in keeping angelfish in the past. I've never heard of tank water being too clean and want to know if that was the pet store talking bs or if there is a potential legitimate issue that could harm the (seemingly healthy) fish still in the tank. It would be terrible if more fish died, she's already extremely stressed from other non fish related things and took these deaths pretty hard.
  8. We have this angelfish, his name is George, he swim sideways and has always stayed this size but the real question I have is what do we do with him now. The other angelfish in the tank peck at him and he doesn’t defend himself and now the runny nose tetras in the tank were pecking him also. Do we separate him? Get rid of a pair of angelfish? (We have 5 angelfish total) *the tank is 150 gallons
  9. Hi. Long time no see. It has been a trip, getting the house to be functional and I am more than ready for the fun part. We finally reinforced the floor, and filled the 125 gallon in the living room. So far, I have a corner matten filter powered by an 800GPH submersible, a thin layer of dirt capped with ~75lb black diamond sand, lights and nothing else. Blank slate. I need more sand/gravel...Hard scape (may use granite slabs and round river rock, which will help anchor plants), plants....a cover, possibly a heater. pH will be low 6.5-7.4, hoping to keep temps 76-78F. Stocking list so far (fish I have in other tanks): Electric Blue Acaras-- I have 2 adults and 10 juveniles, but not keeping all. One blue marbled angel--need more, some one should trade me for acaras. 10 adult albino corydoras As many maylasian trumpet snails as I can dig out of my other tanks--need more! Wishlist: more angels--5-6 total planned. blue and yellow colors. otocinculs or ? Synodontis eupterus--but this may be too big and agressive for the otos...? other chiclids have been considered, mostly geophagus and severums, or dwarfs like apistos, and in a brief crazy moment a lemon tiger oscar, but they are: too big for the tank will eat the otos possibly too small for the acaras hurt plants Planning simple hardy plants, anubias, bolbitis, java fern, valisnaria, frogbit, hornwort maybe, and trying to balance larger fish appetites with and not wanting to get anything that will eat Otos. If only there were a readily available giant oto... Help me solve my stocking issue, I want algae eaters that will stand up to the acaras, and if possible the Synodontis eupterus (I want my own pooka). Dithers are optional, there is enough going on in the tank. I am mostly becoming aware just how difficult it is to keep a tank clean with Acaras in it--they eat the snails I usually rely on, and while they have not bothered the otos yet, they could. The corys get the spilled food alright. Open to suggestions, really want it to stay clean-ish....The acaras are VERY messy. #noplecos
  10. Hi all! I've been following the coop for probably 3 years but I am more of a lurker usually😅 I have a sick fish and was hoping y'all could help! Today my angelfish did not greet me so I thought something must be up. One of them (the smallest and lowest in the pecking order) has two grey patches on the left side of its head, is clamping its fins, and will also "cough" (like gasping or choking but only in spurts and not at the surface). I noticed one of the other angelfish has a thickened slime coat and also exhibited the coughing behavior. So we have a problem but what could it be?! After doing some research, watching Dr.Ashley's video for a fourth and fifth time, and leaving a message with my local fish vet (who is closed on weekends) I do have a few guesses. My firsth though was hole in the head (based mostly on the placement of the white/grey patches on the head but there is no hole), second was columnaris (based on the description from Dr.Ashley's video with the flat, thickened white/grey patches), and third would be chilodonella (also based on the description and photo from Dr.Ashley's video with the flat, thickened white/grey patches and difficulty breathing). I do have access to a microscope! I tried to make slides today with scrapings from the sick fish but they dried before I got to the lab...I have a new plan for this and will attempt again tomorrow! (For personal and scientific curiosity) Water parameters from today are listed below and the best photos I could get of my clearly uncomfortable little buddy :( Water Parameters: pH: 6.8 Nitrates: 20ppm Hardness: 300 Nitrite: 0 Ammonia: 0 KH/Buffer: 100 Water Temperature: 78.6 degrees F Other info: 55g, last water change 2 weeks ago (usually once a month), 2nd round of ParaCleanse for deworming started yesterday, tank occupants are 4 angelfish and bristlenose plecos, have had the fish since April last year so approx 1 year old (they are starting so do some light sparring)
  11. One of my angelfish has bent pectoral and dorsal fins. I have a couple questions about this. Is this bad for the fish or just cosmetic. Can it go away. Should I try to not breed this fish if it is genetic. It is a koi angel if that means anything and is about the size of a 50 cent coin.
  12. Hello, I just wanted to share my 72 bow front angelfish tank. I wanted to have high coverage Koi angelfish in it for along time so I decided to get 6 juv fish, grown them up and breed them and pick from that first pairs spawn for this display tank. Here are the results. It’s kinda a jungle mess right now but I didn’t wanna trim it today. I may add a group of rainbows but I’m not sure just yet.
  13. Hey everyone! I've read some articles online but none have made sense, lets hope I can figure this out. I'm not trying to breed my angelfish, rather just curious the sex of them. How do you sex angelfish? Are they even old enough to sex yet? Thankyou in advance! Here's a little backstory about my angelfish, I have five of them currently, the one in the third picture is the boss. They all get along great, sharing the food. The other black and white one is much smaller then the rest of the angelfish. At first we were concerned it wasn't getting enough to eat but after a close observation at feeding time we have found that they all are pigs. Lol.
  14. So my 2 angelfish in my community tank decided to lay eggs on a strand of jungle val. They both appear to be taking care of the eggs and chasing away any fish that get too close. I don't know if the eggs are viable some look white/yellow. Should I pull the eggs out and put them in a separate tank? Should I pull the other community fish out so they aren't harassed by the angelfish parents? Would like to have success so not sure where to begin. Sorry about the picture quality I need to clean the aquarium glass.
  15. Pair one. Have laid several times but no fryPair 2 currently with eggs day 2Day one of eggs male is still fertilizerDay 2 what is left of eggs day to. I have hatched many angelfish but now I want them to hatch because I have some where they can go. Both pairs are laying every two to three weeks. Ideas welcome. I have platinum Pearlscale that will soon be ready to breed and some are pairing off already.so I would like to be more consistent.
  16. I know mulm and algae can look unsightly, but overall they make the biology of the aquarium better by harboring bacteria and helping with the overall 'metabolism' of the tank.
  17. What kind of angelfish offspring will my golden veiltail and black koi produce? I've found my two angelfish have become a breeding pair and are currently nursing some wrigglers on the leaf of an Amazon sword. Last weekend I found an outlet for any fish I breed. The shop owner didn't seem to mind that my breeding pair is made up of two different varieties. I was just wondering if anyone had any idea what the offspring would look like if they survived. I'm mostly wanting to breed for enjoyment as I find cichlids fascinating to watch rear their young. Thanks 🙂

    Angelfish bloat

    This is the third angel in this tank to have this. First one was a few weeks ago, everyone else seemed fine. Developed a bloated abdomen, passed after three days. Second one did the same thing last weekend, and now a third one is doing the same. 78 degrees 25 nitrate 0 nitrite 0 ammonia 200 ppm gh 80 ppm kh 6.8 ph 0 chlorine no new fish or changes, any ideas?
  19. I've had this angelfish for over 2 years and just about a year ago he started producing a lot of slime coat so much that he was shedding it I've never touched him and he acts just fine
  20. So I’ve had two angels for about 11 months from the time they were very young. They have always gotten along and have even started being affectionate to each other; like they are kissing and such….. until about 6 days ago. Now one of them is bullying the other to the point that the subservient one is hiding. If I try to give the underdog attention, the bully gets mad and immediately starts to “peck” the other with his/her mouth and chases him/her away. Will this behavior stop? Or do I need to remove the bully?
  21. Hello Coop community, First the tank details and info then below is my fishie issue: South American Style heavily planted aquascape. 300 liters / 79 gallons Filter: Oase 600 biomaster and eheim skimmer unit Water parameters according to Coop test strips: Nitrate: 0, Nitrite: 0, Hardness: 0, Buffer: 0, PH: 6,4, Chlorine: 0, Temp: 23 C / 73,4 F CO2 injected at about 20 / 30 mg per liter via inline system (comes on 2 hours before lights and goes off 1 hour bf they go off). 10 hours of lighting per day. Fertilizer: Dennerle fertilizer system. Inhabitants 9 angels (Bulgarian Green Seal Point), 20 cardinals, 20 green neons, 16 corys (orange lazer and eversi), 7 panda garra, 1 whiptail cat, 2 flying foxes. The water we have is really soft (Black Forrest, Germany) and it isnt RO its just mountain water. But almost all my species are south American originally or from areas that have soft water. I used to do 1 50-80% water change every 2 weeks but now I do it every week since the start of the month bc of my current issue (see below). Feeding 1-2 a day. 1 day of fasting / week. Now here is my problem: My angels are having some issues with their dorsal and anal fins (top and bottom ones). In the photos you will see they are slowly deteriorating on the top and have some slime on them. They are also attracting what seem to be the co2 bubbles. There seems to be some stringy substance coming from the fins. To try to improve the problem I have upped my water changes to once a week and also added lots of catappa leaves to see if that would help. I am thinking of using a catappa concentrate (https://www.sera.de/en/product/freshwater-aquarium/sera-phyto-med-catappa/) starting tomorrow after a water change to see what that does. My fish are eating well, super active and the colors are very good atm. So I am really at a loss for what is going on. It is also only the angels that are currently having this fin problem. Other fish seem to be just great. Any thoughts or ideas would really be helpful. I want to get their fins healed up and be a good fish papa! Many thanks. Will
  22. More than a year ago I bought this group of angelfish. They were sold to me as ‘Peru Altum Angels’. Is this correct? They never gotten to the height of an Altum. They are about 6-7 inches. I have a breeding pair in the group, maybe I’m putting the pair in a separate tank. But first I want to be shure what I’breeding.
  23. Got a quick stocking question. Right now my 55 gallon has Black Neon Tetras, Lemon Tetras, Varitus Platys, Pearl Gourami, and some Salt and Pepper Corys that are going to be joining the main tank soon. I am slowly building up the number of Pearl Gouramis to four fish. I was wondering, as my last fish, could I add an Angelfish? Would it get along okay with the other fish in the tank? The tanks is heavily planted, so it provides plenty of cover for everybody.
  24. So I have a breeding pair of angels. The female hasnt laid eggs in probably 2 months but had 2 spawns previously.. and now the male of the pair is actively becoming aggressive to the female.. Is this normal? Suggestions? If I remove one for one to heal is it going to ruin the breeding pair? Thanks in advance!
  25. I have 6 Black Angelfish on the way, I have read and resarched a good bit. I would like to know if there is any tips that can be given from y'alls experience of having them (Angelfish). Thanks Oh YEAH, I'm moving towards more of a blackwater tank, well at least have the dark golden tea look.
