  1. + Some tips on angelfish breeding
  2. Angelfish laid eggs in 55 gallon community tank first time, any input as to what I should do would be great. Have an extra tank with cherry shrimp Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. hey guys i am wondering about a new tank set up. ive had my 60g tank running with 100 feeders for over a month now to cycle the tank properly. last week i added 4 juv altum angles and 2 siamese algae eaters and removed the feeders. next i plan on adding 2 more angels and a betta. now.... some of you may be upset with this but i really want a male. although if i can not find a very peaceful one i will settle with a female ok so do u guys thing this will be acceptable? the tank has lots and lots of hiding placed including driftwood rocks and lots of plants. Please leave some comments and if you have a peaceful male betta for sale on the gold coast please send me a dm. Regards Harrison :help: :help: :help: :help: :help: :help: :help: :help: :help: :help: :help: :help:
  4. Tank is 58 Gallon 130x38x45cm 222L empty, so will be less with Sub and planted. How many Angelfish and Pearl Gouramis fit? 1x Angel 3x Pearl 1M/2F Or 2 -4 Angel 2x pearl with 1x Pictus Catfish 5x Julii Cory 5 x Kuhli loach maybe some Glass shrimp?? Happy to loose the loachs if needed.... and shrimp (i know the angels may eat them) Cheers
  5. Hi, i have two angelfish at about 10-11cm they have been in the same tank for about 3-4months. i am trying to determine whether they have paired off. They show no aggression towards each other and are the only angels in the tank, they swim around side by side, they never seem to split off, and recently i have noticed one of them cleaning my anubias leaves. could they be a pair? thanks
  6. Ok so a couple of weeks ago a pair of my larger angels spawned, a koi colored male(assuming he's male) and a white blushing angel (female). Sadly my big male BN decided the eggs looked tasty and all over. I rescaled my tank last night and subsequently did about a 50% water change, changed the filter outflow pipe and changed/added more gravel. Now it seems the koi male and my black angel(assuming female) are pairing up and the black one is beating the jebus out of my white angel. She seems to be hunting her down across the tank and ramming and nipping at her. Is this just her asserting herself or should I be concerned? The black one doesn't seem to annoy anyone else just the white female. She backs herself into a corner and just cops it sweet. Doesn't fight back or anything. Any suggestions?! I could take her out but the other tanks are stocked with other fish from bumblebee gobys, guppies and shrimp, to goldfish varieties. Water parameters are all good, temps are good. Any help would be appreciated!!
  7. Hi Guys, Just after some advice...again. I have a couple of things going on. Water parameters PH- 6.8 (ish) Temp 26 Nitrite 0 Ammonia 0 Nitrate about 10- 20 ppm (i know that's a bit high, water changes last night and tonight again if needed) 4ft 200ltr tank (25% water change weekly) Stock, 3 x BN, 10 Neons, 8 Danios, 1 guppy, 3 Mollies, 1 x Sailfin Pleco, 1 Angelfish Firstly i have lost 3 angel fish in the last week, a few weeks ago i had Angelfish eggs, then about a week after the female i found dead, i thought the male may have beaten it up, last Sunday the second Angelfish dead (that's the two females gone), and this morning a third swimming very slowly on its side and then would just fall to the bottom of the tank( i am sure it will be dead by the time i get home) , all were somewhat smaller than the dominant male that is left, although all started out the same size when i got them, i had put this down to bullying but i am not sure. During the same period (over a couple of weeks) i had three mollies die, might sound strange but i had 3 black and three white, only the black mollies have died. I make the point that there were no signs of disease on any of the fish, but the angel fish did have their fins quite chewed up bu the looks of things except for the one i found this morning. And last night i had my male BN who also has breed in the last couple of weeks (although it seems the babies all bare one have been eaten , or something) and once again i had put it down to the male angelfish probably having snacks when the babies came out of the BN cave, anyway the male BN has this strange excretion from it that doesn't look right. So now i am thinking that i may have a bigger problem, i have only been back in the hobby for a few months now and just cant seem to take a trick. Any help is appreciated.
  8. I have a female angelfish and her stomach is massive, she laid eggs about 12 days ago. She hasn't been eating for about maybe a week. I would have tried green peas if she was eating but cause she isn't i put her in a Epsom salt bath 1 table spoon in a gallon of water for half an hour last night, she didn't do a poo so I tried it again this morning and still nothing? The reason im worried about bloat is because hre stomach is normally round but this is taking it to another level. Do epsom salt bath normally take a few goes to get the poo moving? How long can you leave a fish in the bath?
  9. I'm looking at setting up a tank for some nice veil tailed angelfish, and would love to know what plants are recommended, and what substrate I should use for them? i don't want to go overboard with the number of plants, but would just like a nice looking display tank with plants, rocks and some driftwood. thanks so much in advance!
  10. Hi I have a 6ft 400L aquarium I like angelfish alot would about 10 be to many for my tank also have 2 silver sharks,redtail shark ,2 kissing fish and a few small fish Can you mix different types of Angles together all would they get aggressive against each other. Thanks
  11. Ok so upon my several hundred daily inspections of my tank I noticed this on one of my Amazon Sword leaves.... This is only the second time I've ever had angels spawn on me and this has happened over night. I'm assuming it's this pair of angels as they won't leave the leaf alone and chase all other angels, neons and silver sharks away from it. What do I do??? Remove the leaf? Which isn't really an option as the only empty tank I have is ingested and cycling, do I remove all the fish that could attack/eat including parents?? Or do I cut the leaf out and put it into an in tank fry basket type thing? Or just leave them to their own devices?!?! Help ASAP!! I'd love to actually get some babies out of this!! I don't even know what to feed them?!? Luke

  13. Hi all, I'm new here but have been lurking for a bit, getting some great info. So I'm setting up a 190l corner tank, it's quite high, 60cm I think and I've got my heart set on pair of angels in a community. I was planning to get maybe 6 little ones and wait for a pair to form, trade out the rest. So, to go with them I was thinking about a group of red phantom tetras, lemon tetras, cories and maybe some scissor tail rasboras. Any thoughts on numbers and if these fish will be okay together? Oh, can Otto catfish go in with angels? Grateful for any advice!
  14. Hey guys what are some of the tank mates that go well with angelfish. In particular some of the larger species, any other cichlids, tetras, etc? Have u guys had luck with particular species. Keen on an oscar but waay to big but heard people had success with angels and oscars before. I have a 4ft tank with a few angels, few plecos so the tank is quite empty atm. Also have a few neon tetras but gonna move them later on.
  15. http://youtu.be/wj_-ODZNGQU They're pretty tame today.
  16. Over twenty years ago I had heaps of tanks and bred red-eyed, black angels. Several long-distance home moves tamed the fish collection, but I am now settled again and have set up a 3 ft community tank. The back of the tank is well planted, with hifin platties (3) and neon tetras (10). I am looking for some angels (black, silver) to complete the community. I have not been able to find quality angels in pet/fish stores, so turned to the internet and found this great forum. Now that I have introduced myself, I can begin the search for those elusive angels.
  17. On Tuesday it will be 2 weeks since daddy and mummy angelfish hooked up and laid some eggs. Now i don't know if it's sleep deprivation or what, but the last couple days when i have been trying to feed the fry and they just start attacking my hand and they are getting more and more aggressive each time. I want to take the parents out, but i worry if i intervene the might fry die. What should i do.....?
  18. The title pretty much sums it up. I'm hoping someone can tell me a place I could find slate in nature, call me cheap but I don't want to pay for it. Preferably close to Manly on the Bayside. Not sure if this is in the right part of the forum. Sorry if it isn't. -Kyrin
  19. Hey guys, My female angelfish is acting a bit odd. She had a sore on here left side which was white but now has gone black and the bump is disappearing. But she seems to be twitching which i have never seen before. A tube has also appeared on her anus which i have never seen before. She has on only just paired up with a male angel my tank recently.
