My Little Angel, My First Cichlid!

    I'm pleased to introduce you all to Marty! I picked him up just a few days ago and he's settling in nicely. He shares the tank with a clown pleco, and he will be the only other fish in the tank as long as he lives. He's a golden angelfish, but I'm unsure of his exact color type... I know he's a golden, and that's it...

    so, without further a do, I give you Marty!

    thanks everybody! ;D I have a few more pictures to share, full body pictures. Hopefully he looks like the male I thought he was in this picture. :)


    Whattya think Shawnie? Still a Martina? Remember, he's still young, only about the size of a half dollar (50 cent piece). Might that change later?

    Marty is cute as a button. Hope you have a large tank for him because angels can be about 10 inches high but 6 inches long!! ><
