Purchased my new Angels today :D

  1. platy ben Well Known Member Member

    I bought 5 little angels today while I was at the LFS, however they aren't home yet ;) My LFS is holding them for me until wednesday because I want a couple of extra days to check my tank has finished its cycle :)

    I spent around 30 mins selecting my group that I want to breed :) and I have tried my best to get nice colour, however good body shape aswel, straight ventral fins, nice round body etc :) and I think I managed to get a good group :)

    I got 3 different species,

    2 Gold
    2 Silver (wild colour)
    1 Double dark with extended tips to its tail fin :)

    The 5 will be going into the 34G for now and I will grow them together until I get a pair, the rest will then be moved to the 45G once the koi are out in the pond :)

    Will post pics when I get them :)

    Thanks,
    Ben

    Just a teaser :) lol

    Some picks of their tank :D
    Ive gone for a more simple look to allow for plenty of swim space :).

    I put 4 cherry shrimp in today and I hope they survive, the plastic tree roots are hollow so im hoping they hide in and under it :)
    I have put a round air filter under the hole in the bottom of the roots to create an awesome effect :)

    What do you guys think? :)

    EDIT: In the last picture, look carefully at the top of the roots :), SHRIMP :D lol

    I LOVE the aquascaping! The contrast looks awesome. That bubbling really adds a special feel to the tank. Your little shrimp is so cute.

    Great job:;perfect

    I had the same doubts but im just hoping they can hide :)
    I still have some in the 8G so this won't be the end of my shrimps if these 4 do become a snack, but its worth a try :)

    Just a little update, one of the two female shrimp just laid eggs under the roots :) Her and her boyfriend are all cuddled up with their little yellow eggies :)

    I have the feeling the angels may now be having caviar on the menu tomorrow ;)

    Just another question I thought of, some of the bubbles from the tree root are tiny and they seem to be sticking to the angels, not badly, just a couple here and there, will this bother the fish at all?

    Another thing :), just noticed the two stripey ones have a bit of red in their dorsal fins :D

    def not lol your tank is really nice looking i love black on black lol. on the right side of your tank is that you filter? it looks like a box in the corner? your angel's are nice looking also. how did you find out if there male/ female at the jovi stage? also is there a way i can put angel fish in my 20 gal tall?
