Today I am selling 40 Leopoldi Angels to a local fish store. I think what makes these attractive to the store is that all the fish are mature and they are of a desirable variety of angelfish. I sent a sample pair down to the store a few days ago so that the size and quality of the fish could be evaluated and these were sold almost immediately. The hardest part was getting them out of a deep tank that has lots of tangled wood in it. After draining about 400 gallons of water out there were many fewer hiding places for the fish. With the help of my wife we put ladders on either side of the tank, leaned in with nets in hand, and corralled the angelfish into an area where they could be safely retrieved. At this point they are packed in 5 gallon buckets and ready for transport to the store today. I have kept back 6 fish, because I am leaning toward putting a pair into the 1930s Historically Accurate Planted Aquarium. Something like this from August 1934 Better Homes and Gardens:
