    Angels are the best. My absolute favorite fish. The wild coloration is so cool when they get their red eyes, too.

    Thanks everyone! Really appreciate it. This is one of my favorite pics because it was the first time I realized that I had actually accomplished growing out their triangular form through all my hard work and incredible efforts. It was my first time! Such a labor of love.

    @Magicpenny75 my favorite too! Agree, absolutely love the red eyes! Their lifespan is also a great attraction for me and to watch their size increase considerably over time. What type of angels do you have??

    also really do love my synodontis petrocolas and panda garras which I keep with my angels. They are just so playful and fun to watch. Just set up another tank with golden rams... fingers crossed

    I have a couple of koi angels. Got them with some issues and have gotten them healed up (you can find a thread about that adventure from my profile) and they're a little bigger than half dollar size now.

    Nice! I don’t know much about koi angels. Sorry to hear they had some issues but great to hear you’ve healed them. Playing fish doctor can be really tough but from my experience angels are pretty hardy and resilient fish when they come from reliable sources. Cool I’ll check it out.

    Mine came from an LFS, but I dont know what their source is. I think a lot of koi are bred more for the orange colors, but I like the yellow with the cow spots

    Thank you!! Sorry for my delayed response its been a crazy week with one of my other tanks and work. I did breed these guys! It was actually my first time but I consumed an incredible amount of information in a short period of time throughout the process which enabled success. These babies are actually almost 2 and half years old now. I've been trying to snap a good shot for you but fish are hard to photograph lol. I've had a hard time letting them go (so I have too many/still have them all) but soon will decide who to keep and who to bring to my lfs to be fair to the fish... they are going to be huge! here they are at 2yrs 4m. The "father" fish is a wild caught peruvian altum. Thank you for your interest!!
