I looked at your aquarium info and saw that you just set up the tank a week ago. How did you cycle it. The only way the tank can be cycled that fast is by using cycled filter media or bio spira. If you didn't use either of these, your tank is not cycled and your fish will probably not make it once ammonia and nitrites start to show up.
Welcome to Fishlore.
Those are some cute little angel fry. I'd recommend getting a conditioner called "Prime" to treat the water with and changing 50% of the water daily until the tank is cycled. Test the tank each day before changing water with the API master freshwater testing kit. This will help protect those little babies from toxin poisoning.
The size that they're at now .. I'd start looking for a 30 gallon tank asap. They'll really take off soon on their growth and if they're still in a small tank, they can go through stunted growth damage.
If you can order a product called "Fish Protector" and/or "Vita-Chem" .. both are very good for the fish and help fins heal.
I see you have a cat.. you'll want to cover the hole in the back of the tank lid to prevent fishing. The shelf liner with holes or a plastic crafts sheet with holes can be taped over the hole.
Congrats on your new fish. I hope that you are planning to get them a bigger tank soon. Angels need a lot more space than a 10 gallon tank. They will grow to be 6 inches long and very tall. That tank will stunt their growth, shorten their life, and make them succeptable to diseases. To house 3 angels you need a MINIMUM 30 gallon tank. I would suggest a 40 gallon if you can get one. Try looking on craigslist for some good deals.
I really like the hello fishy sign
lol..That is creative..sounds neat..you should have them all making face against the glass
oh... I'm so sorry:'(
it isn't silly at all to cry over them... they are beautiful little creatures...
you should keep the other angel, just get a bigger tank... I get really attached to fishes.
I usually cry when I lose a fish. I'm sorry about your little angel
I'm sorry, I know you didn't ask about this, but if you put them all in your 10g, you've overstocked your tank.
6 Red eyes will be 18" of fish and 7 neons comes to 10.5 inches of fish. That's too many for 10g.
I'd suggest taking the red eyes back because they can grow to be 3" and need a school of at least 5, which, if you kept them and returned the neons, you'd still be overstocked,
7 neons are manageable in a 10g.
Was your tank cycled? Sorry if I missed that. Adding that many fish at once is going to overwhelm the cycle.
Keep a close eye on your water parameters.
everyone thinks its ok to the visual eye when fishies are small...its their bioload that's the worry not their size..but you did awesome getting the bigger tank ....you have a bad case of MTS coming on..be careful as there is no cure
multiple tank sickness LOL its on the move in your mind I can see it!! and yes are pets are strange..my dogs sit n watch the fish..not sure why, but I can see the cats licking their lips now
My tank was deffinately cycled and I have a 30 gal tank from my mother I'm preparing to transfer my Red Eyes to once they start to really grow. I have it all under control! =)
I love that everyone is very concerned about my tank (soon to be tanks), it's very heartwarming. For now, I've posted pictures of my wee fish but you know.. my 10 gal seems so big.. anyway.. the fish are happy while small for the time being and I'm sure they'll soon enjoy their 30gal home once they are bigger!
multiple tank sickness LOL its on the move in your mind I can see it!!
I once had a nightmare that I had so many aquariums in my house, that I was doing nothing but running back and forth and up and down stairs, feeding, vacuuming, doing water changes, and checking on water parameters for dozens of aquariums... it's not a sickness, it's a plague!
I wouldn't dream of overcrowding my tank and endangering my fish
I know I've mentioned this before, but I revisited this thread and I'm sorry if this sounds harsh, and I don't mean it to be, but IMO, you're doing that right now with 28" of fish in a 10 gallon tank.
And as I've also stated, I now have a bigger tank to transfer the Red Eye's to once it's ready =)
and as they also stated, it isn't the fish size what's the problem, it is the bioload. you have almost 3 times the limit bioload for your tank size.
as long as you get your other tank ready soon.... but lots and lots of water changes.
