    Angelfish the Second Time Around

    Received my shipment of 4 black veiled angelfish several days ago. Just getting around to taking some photos of them. They showed up in great condition and seemed to acclimate very well. They took to the grow out tank and all starting eating the first time I fed them (waited 12+ hours till the next day). They are destined for my 125, but right now they'll hang out for a few weeks in the 20g tall grow out tank. Here's some shots...

    Nice looking fish as well as tank. If you don't mind me asking, who did you purchase from?

    Thanks. I bought them through Angelfish USA. I am not affiliated with them in any way, but as a customer, I have had very good experience with them. This is my second order. Fish arrived on time and in great shape both times.

    Growing...

    Follow-up on the angelfish. All four are eating and growing like crazy. Every time I walk in the room they all line up and stare through the glass at me. Maybe hard to appreciate from these 2 pictures, but I'd bet they are double in size! There's clearly a bigger, more aggressive one, and a runt, too. Likely be moving them into the main tank in a few days. Should look nice in there.

    Here's just a quick fews shots tonight...

    Currently, there are:
    22+ Serpae tetras
    6 Congo tetras
    6 siamese algae eaters
    3 sidthimonki batias
    6 large emerald Cory cats
    6-8 ghost shrimp
    3 snails
    2 BN plecos

    Had 4 angelfish in this tank previously for several months before an unfortunate CO2 accident did them in. All the other fish made it through (except 1 pleco). The angels have been in with 6 red eye tetras for 3-4 weeks to encourage social behavior. The Serpaes I understand can get nippy. But seems there are enough of them to keep themselves busy. They left the other 4 alone when they were in there. All groups are different. We'll see!

    Dumped them in - figuratively, not literally...

    After about 4-5 weeks in the grow out tank, my 4 angelfish have probably doubled in size and started to look crowded in a 20 gallon tall. Therefore, I finally put them in the 125 several days ago. They seemed to have taken to their new home very well. Most importantly, I haven't seen any nipping at all by the Serpae tetras. They essentially ignore each other, which I think is great!

    Here's a few quick pics of them in their new home.

    I'll keep everyone up to date as they continue to get bigger, and if I don't say so myself, better looking over time!

    Update pics...

    The four angels continue to do well in the 125 tank. Growth is impressive, except for the runt, who's eating well, but much smaller than the others. No problems with their neighbors in the tank so far, everyone seems to be getting along. Here are pics of two of them...
