About Me

  1. I have two angels that were moved into the community tank almost a year ago. I'm guessing that they are about two years old. Aggression from the larger of the two pretty much ceased when they got to their new home. Last night, the smaller angel was for lack of a better description twitchy, whenever another fish was nearby. The tank has a large resin tree stump with exposed roots in the center. Tonight both of the angels seem to have taken the underside of the stump as their own, challenging all comers. They are not the biggest fish in the community. This behavior stops at feeding time. Am I seeing: the beginning of breeding behavior, has it already happened, or is something else happening.
  2. I just spotted divots today on my angelfish. They are only on one side of it's head, right behind it's eye. Is this Hole in the Head disease? It is eating and behaving normally.
  3. 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!
  4. 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.
  5. So the Terror of my Tank, my female koi angelfish, is injured. She's ruled the tank for a long time but I recently replaced the severum I'd lost about a year and a half ago. So far they were getting along well enough- she'd chase the severum like she would the other angels, but he'd turn around and scare her off. Well, today I looked at my tank and found the koi angel swimming upside down at the bottom. She must have injured her swim bladder, either the severum fought back or she spooked from him turning at her and hurt herself. I've got her in a net box at the top of the tank, separated from other fish. She's still actively swimming but can't flip herself over. What should I do to maximize her chances of healing from this?
  6. They laid this (their second time) in the last 24-48 hours. What should be my next move? The piece can be removed easily, should I grab a currently used sponge filter and place it in a new 20 long?
  7. Hi! Im having trouble taking care of a fish. This angelfish has been handed to me for care. But, i do not know what has happened to it. I don't know if the cloudy eye is from trauma or because of a disease. It used to live in a 55 gal with two other angelfish and a baby irredescent shark. The owner told me that the tank was neglected a few times. When I got the fish the irredescent shark had amonia burns in the fins. Which have gotten significantly better. I treated the fish with paracleanse first, then myradel. Now im using salt. Also there's tanins in the water because of driftwood. First picture is the right eye with the cloudy eye. Second picture the left eye for comparison. What can I do?
  8. Thanks to YouTube learned how to get my eggs to hatch and grow! My angelfish pair are laying every two weeks and have a great hatch rate. I have so many fry what do I do now for grow out?
  9. Often I think "the more light the better," but I think these lower light photos turned out well.
  10. I have a picture I have added to show the angelfish in my 110gallon. This tank is planted and they've been growing in here the last month. Their fins have never been perfect but I do frequent water changes so I wanted to see if that would help. I have Primafix and Melafix. I just want to know what this is exactly. To me it is fin rot bacterial, but I am here for another opinion! Any luck using salt with live plants instead of Meds? I know Cory swears by salt but I don't want to dehydrate my plants! Thanks Nerms 🙂
  11. I finally convinced my spouse to let me re-enter the hobby after a 2 year hiatus from a devastating tank explosion in our old apartment complex. I’m currently in the process of readying a 75g planted tank for angelfish in our new home. I haven’t really decided but I’ve narrowed it to plain silvers, zebra silvers or I’m also intrigued by these new rio nanay angels with the yellow speckles. Anyways, This isn’t my first time with angelfish(maybe long term it will be) nor fish in general. But right now I’m really attracted to the vertical anal and dorsal fin look. There’s just something about that look. Anyways my thing is, I’ve seen other people’s angels and when fully grown they seem to have lost that vertical look and the fins seam to naturally fold back. Is there any way I can prevent this and grow them to there max potential with as vertical of a shape as possible??? Or is it maybe a genetic thing that’s a game of luck? Some people have recommended altums to me since they seem to look more vertical and as much as I’d love that, I’m just not that rich right now and I don’t feel comfortable starting with something as expensive as those in a tank that’s not as seasoned as I’d like. I haven’t purchased anything yet, I’m just letting the tank and plants grow out for now while I do research. Any help or suggestions would be appreciated.
  12. Hi everyone Before I start, I currently reside in India, where meds like Prazipro and Paracleanse aren't available in the local market, and can only be imported into the country at exorbitant costs. Hence, my decision to proceed with the steps outlined below. I have a group of 5 juvenile angelfish which came from the store with internal parasites cause they all were passing white, stringy faeces, in a 40 gallon tank. I put them through a 10 day course of treatment with food soaked in 400mg metronidazole once a day with 40-50% water changes after 8 hrs and they did eat the food but 2 out of the 5 didn't get better. The following week I noticed the 2 outliers not doing too good and just hanging at the top of the water, not showing any interest in food or anything, and they did have white, stringy faeces again. The other 3 were eating fine and doing great. Since they shared the same tank, I decided to treat them again with metro soaked food in the hopes that it would help the ones that were eating as well. This time, I used 800mg of metro instead of 400mg like last time. Around 6 days into the treatment, I noticed that all 5 of them stopped eating any of the food, and so I stopped the treatment with the 7th day. It's been over 2 weeks since then, but none of them has eaten any food since then (as per what I've noticed). Also, I have a couple of Ramirezi, some juvenile Red Head Tapajos I'm growing out and a large male Bristlenose pleco in the same tank who all went through both treatments and are doing more than great, pigging out during feeding time. All 5 Angelfish are currently very active, have great finnage and are swimming throughout the aquarium, squabbling with each other and even coming up to the top of the water when I approach to feed them. But they show zero interest in the food, sometimes mouthing a piece and spitting it out immediately and then swimming away. I can see that their stomachs have sunken in as well. Looking for any help and advice to get them to start eating again. And on the subsequent treatment required. I'm currently on day 3 of trying to get them to eat food soaked in Garlic Guard but no luck yet. Water Parameters: 86 degrees 30 nitrate 0 nitrite 0 ammonia 7.5 ph
  13. Hi, I have been trying to breed my leopard angelfish for a couple months now, It took me some time to get a flat slate and then of course their tank broke ( I live by murphys law if you have seen my other posts) and I had to fit them in my 29 gallon planted tank community tank which they had no problem nipping half the inhabitants of and eating all of my amanos, but I digress. I now have them back in their tank and they keep producing wigglers, I keep missing the eggs for some reason, but everytime i move the wigglers into their ziss breeder box they die within a matter of days. I clean the bottom of the box with a turkey baster for any detritus that has built up but I'm wondering what else I am missing? I think at this point I have watched every video dean has made on angelfish breeding but I'm obviously not getting something.
  14. Hi all, my angelfish has been sick for several weeks, hasn’t been eating for about three weeks. It’s mouth kind of disappeared, it has a hole like it’s flesh has been eaten off, and some smaller holes in its body. My LFS suggestion was to treat with erythromycin, wich i did. Then I thought it might be HITH so I switched to seachem metroplex. Nothing helps. It’s horrible to see. I am considering euthanizing with clove oil, but can’t make myself doing it. Can someone give me an advice please? Should I do it?

    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?
  16. Woke up and started working on the big move for my green spotted puffer. He is getting graduated from my fish room to our living room where he can be more interactive with the family and give me the space for more things in the fishroom. Went to check on my rescue tank (a tank I just recently rescued a bunch of fish in) and the angel passed. No one has had any sign of illness, typical great parameters (0/0/25-50 - today is WC day). No signs of injury, it ate healthily and eagerly like it always does last night. Not really looking for a direct reason, these things happen and its nothing I can easily determine, just expressing my sadness, as I did the best to help give it a better life (It was in a 29g that was super over populated). Anyhow, I do have my new tank almost ready to go, waiting for it to heat up and the ammonia to calm down after moving live rock/sand (the fun of saltwater) which should be gone by this evening (just a slight trace) and my puffer, piggy, gets to be moved. I'm super excited as this is a long process, I got a tank I had to reseal, do some other odds and ends to get the sump system going and voila, its going! Very rewarding to be close to the finish line, and to have him in my living room to interact with everyone. It has a pretty canopy too, but I had to cut a few holes in it for the return and the HOB skimmer. I plan on replacing my DIY spray bar you see with the loc-tite later.
  17. I have a 65 gallon tall. Water parameters good blah blah. 2 angel fish a few cardinal tetras and a few guppies. A work in progress... I rotate feedings between Live mosquito larvae, extreme flakes fluvel bug bites flakes and bug bites granules. Everything is fine usually. But when I feed the bug bites granules one of the angels gets aggressive to everyone in the tank. When I feed any of the other foods there is no chasing at all! Anyone else see this behavior?
  18. Has anyone ever seen a golden veil angelfish crossbred with a zebra angel?
  19. Aloha all so long story short, I got two remaining angel fish from petco, started with 6 lol we know how those fish go all 4 were being treated till they just gave up but I have two left and I may have just got lucky enough to have gotten a pair out of them all,(or so I pray). Now this is where I need some serious trained eyes to help me identify these two specimens. By going by all traits I’ve been collecting online about what separates them in sex and to me I think they might be but this would be my first pair to attempt to breed and I just want to be sure. They swim together pretty much all the time I notice there’s very little aggression except for when I feed them for ex. For the first time today while feeding they were starting to peck and chase til both faced off and legit held each other by the mouth and were kinda in a tug of war type of deal not too sure if this is common with pairs? I know from what I could collect online for info, the one sure fire way to identify a male and female is by breeding tubes and they only protrude those out when they’re nearing ready to breed which is hard with just two angels haha 😆. Anyways I really hope we can shine some light on these guys and get to moving on my next little project. Thank you for taking the time and helping out much mahalo and Aloha 🤙🏽
  20. My Angelfish, after eating 13 Neon Tetras was moved back into my 20 high. I am wondering what would be a suitable tank mate for him/her. Would a Betta work or would they be prone to fighting?
  21. My angelfish is bloating whenever i feed ive tried feeding smaller amounts and i try to isolate it while feeding to monitor how much it eats just by distracting it on the other end of the tank while slowing feeding the other side to make sure theres no excess food in the tank he can eat but it seems within a few minutes the bottom of the abdomen swells it goes away a few hours later and it doesn't have a sunken stomach if i accidentally miss a feeding i only feed twice a day so i try to keep each feeding 12 hours apart witch seems to be keeping the fish alive but it doesnt seem to me the fish could be healthy im new to fish keeping so im hoping im wrong
  22. Here are a couple of my angels that are getting more beautiful as they mature.
  23. If you were getting into Angelfish breeding and selling online what would you choose to breed?
  24. 🤔 lesson learned. My Angelfish isn't such an angel. He's eaten 13 of 14 Neon Tetras :( If I do get some more I'll set up a 10 gallon tank as a grow out tank and raise them until they're big enough to go in with him. He hasn't bothered the Cardinal Tetras at all. They're roughly twice the size as the Neons were.
