    Hi! I will be getting a new aquarium for my two angelfish soon. I was wondering if there were any tips and tricks on how to transfer the fish without them getting stressed or anything?

    You could try extra dechlorinator (PRIME) and stress coat. Make sure that the new tank is fully cycled before transferring. (You can use the filter from your old setup to speed this up. Should only take a week or two. Make sure you have your new filter running alongside it.) Those are my suggestions.

    If the tank they are in right now is fully cycled you can just move the cycle and the fish over to the new tank. As long as you move EVERYTHING over to the new bigger tank both the fish and the bacteria (the cycle) will just feel like they have had a big water change.
