Thanks for the suggestion, I will be reading the topic when I have a little free time, with the wife and a 3 year old son it's a bit complicated 😄. I do weekly water changes and siphon the substrate, angels are not a very clean fish, I have kept the water that comes from the water changes in a 25 gallon container and added a little new water with liquid bacteria from brightwell aquatics. In addition I have placed a pair of scalars that come main tank so that the fish continue to "dirtying" the water. Last weekend my 10 gallon tank where my Croaking gourami lived had a leak. So now I only have the wild scalare angel, albino pearlscale and the gourami croaking in the 35 gallon tank. 25 gallon container contains a koi angel and smokey angel.

Oh! I didn't realize you had all those fish already. I haven't used liquid bacteria products, let us know how you get on with it & keep testing your water! Good luck!

Until a few weeks ago, my fish list was as follows: angel blue silver, angel pinoy DD, trichogaster leeri, koi angel, marble angel, albino pearscale angel, smokey angel and wild scalare. Not counting croaking gourami that was only 10 gallons. The angels blue silver, pinoy DD, marble and the trichogaster leeri are gone, the angel koi and the angel skomey are in 25 gallons of partial change water with new water and bacteria. The others are at 35 gallons in what is now the main tank, soon I will be making some adjustments to permanently accommodate all angelfishes, before accommodating everything for the move to the 90 gallon tank (I have discarded 65 gallons). So far all the fish are in excellent condition, and the only fish I have insured to transfer to the 90 gallon tank is the wild scalare angel.

So, some elements have arrived today, the mangrove trunks are already here and some plants, pumps and the JBL aquabasis plus substrate have also arrived, which is very important for this project. As I commented a few days ago, I have started moving the necessary items in advance of the arrival of the 90 gallon tank, I hope to have it at home this weekend.

Well, I need to see things in the tank, I can't tell from bags. We'll need an update & some dramatic use of that big piece of wood!
I have started with the work for mangrove wood, a friend of my extreme confidence helped me with the transfer of equipment from Mexico City, he told me that the wood is already treated, however I will do my part. I'm also excited to see the aquarium working, but I still need to plan the aquascape, I will do a measurement job and study the best places to place each plant, each rock and each wood, this tank must be something great man!, and I like to bring the projects step by step, especially in aquarism which is one of the most important things for me.

Is the tank filled yet? Can I get pictures of the angels in the tank please. They look odd to me.

In the last days I moved my albino pearlscale angel to the 25 gallon container. In the 35 gallon tank I have the wild angel, croaking gourami and I got a bulgarian red cheek angel, who came with my plants and a L201 Hypancistrus inspector pleco, who unfortunately died on the trip, here I attach a couple of photographs
