With my new 55 gal tank finally cycled, I made a trip to the lfs tonight and picked up some new inhabitants...4 juvenile angels! I am hoping eventually to get a pair out of the deal. They are being introduced to their new tank water right now. Once they are out of the bag I will post a picture or two. Not that you all have never seen angel photos before, but oh well!

A bit blurry, but you get the idea. The 4th one is hiding behind a plant.

nice 1 sean, Ive also 4 angels and they are real nice fish to look at. i been told if you want to breed angels then the temp has to be slightly higher than normal not sure if this is correct as I'm no expert. Ive one angel who thinks hes the daddy, he tends to pick on 2 of the others maybe hes trying to impress the angel he leaves alone coz he has plans for her ;D well planted tank is also a good idea for angels and plenty of room to swim. good luck ;D

angels prefer temperature range of 24–30°C (75–86°F).Average lifespan in an aquarium is 10 years, Ive read that the bigger the tank the quicker they will grow. i bought the last 2 around 5 months ago and i can see a different in size. i had 3 in my tank and the fully grown angel paired up with one but picked on the other so i added a 4th and now they all get on .
