    Our 6 year old. His mate Ginger swam on to the ancestors a couple of months ago. They were mated for over 5 years. He is small for an angel of his age. I introduced three young angels to his tank a few months ago. They have grown to the age where they play rough. While they were not hurting Fred he was hiding a lot. So I moved him to the 37 gal. Remember he is small for a full grown angel.

    I added the vignette in post processing.

    Thank you Anders :)

    He embodies all that is endearing in angels with none of the bad traits. I will really miss this one when he swims to the ancesters.

    As always your photos are beautiful as are your fish, Angels are fast becoming one of my favourites.

    I agree thunder, great photos. I've always wanted a big angel tank. Please post more. :)

    Thank you Coradee :)

    Angels, corys and ottos are always in one or more of our tanks. There is something that is just so personable about a full grown angel that you raised from a baby.

    Thank you Rivieraneo :)

    If I can not come up with the rest of the money to turn the 150 gallon into a reef tank I am thinking about turning it into an Amazon biotope for angels.

    This is Fred when he was very young before he and Ginger got together.

    Oh my gosh so pretty! Looks like her bottom fin (forgot what it's called) is a shade of blue/purple in some places! :D

    Yes she was :) She she grew into quite the lady fish.

    That would be the anal fin.

    I imagine so! Angelfish are so graceful, they truly do look like royalty when they swim!
