Can't wait to see those peacocks!

They are beautiful I will post them tomm sometime.. we ended up coming home w/ another tank for the kenyI fry when she spits... I have to get it set up and cycling on the fast cycle w/ a filter already going on another tank and substrate too...

I also ended up buying another fish for the 55g... and we are having a territory war going on (have been w/ the kenyI male).. I am going to move rocks tomm and vacuum redo some territories... he has all the fish on one side and he has the whole right side of the tank...

lol... hes got a major attitude right now.. especially since I took the female out that is holding. he won't let anyone near the whole right side. I am going to have to fix his attitude by taking his territory away.

Shes doing great thanks for asking... shes in a holding tank right now while her new tank cycles (it should be ready fast I put substrate from the 55 gallon in it and a filter that had been running on a tank on it). I just want the fry to have plenty grow out room. She is finding ways to get in a few spirulla flakes.. I watch her when I put a few flakes in.. .I crush them up..

Yea, we've not had cichlid fry yet so it was a little disappointing when the angels ate the eggs, but not unexpected.

My mother has angels.. actually she had eggs in the tank but she didn't even know until I was taking pictures and I saw it in one of the pics... it was too late. I told her to pay closer attention to her angels, she would have some fry soon if obviously she had a pair in there. I love angels, they are so beautiful! I have been trying to talk her into getting a much bigger tank...

I hope you can. I'll be setting up a 30 gallon for the angel fry to grow out in, big enough to sell. They have so much personality, I love them.

She has a concrete floor bottom in her den under the hardwood.. so her floor could handle the weight of any size tank... it kills me! I am struggling w/ wanting bigger tanks and can't because of the floor in my house.... she could have any size.
I have found her a couple good deals on craigslist hopefully she will buy into one. Since she started her resturant its been hard for her to want anything though, shes still trying to get back the money she put into the resturant. (but shes complaining after only 1 week of business)
