I picked up some new fish yesterday. Here's a couple of pics:

This is one of only two that were from my breeding pair of Angels. I raised these from the time they were but wee little eggs!

Nice pictures! I have some Angels that look just like the one in your first picture. As far as personality goes, I think Angelfish are some of the most fun to keep. Always coming up to greet me whenever I approach their tank.

Yea, they are kinda like Oscars and Green Terrors in that aspect. They know where their food comes from!

ok what is the fish that is attached to the side of the tank (the one in the last pic) is that your algae eater---or is that a sucking catfish like someone else has in their tank--(a picture in this topic of the forum)---because when I purchased that fish--I was told it was an algae eater --he was small when I got him and he's grown into this big thing now in my 20 gallon tank--in all honesty I went up to a 20 because he was too big for my 10---are they one and the same thing?

The fish stuck to the glass is called a plecostomus or simply pleco. Some people think it's bad luck to completely spell pleco and will spell it pl*co. Anyhoo, depending on the species, some of them like yours get very big and outgrow there tanks. If possible, you will probably need to see if you can trade your pleco in for a pleco called a bristlenose pleco. They only get about 6 inches long depending on the species, and would be much more suited for your tank.
