Re: [Killietalk] Re: OFF TOPIC Angelfish
Greetings and good morning List,
I don't know how to address this BUT Angels are very aggressive cichlids.
They enjoy trimming fins of the more passive fish. I have learned and read
that they survive best in a single species tank.
Due to their size and aggressive nature it would be best to place them in a
large aquarium but aside from fishes with built in defenses like loaches and
cory's the angels don't tolerate other tankmates that could fit into their
mouth. Any other cich's would make for a conituous battle leaving both the
angels and the other cich being injured and maybe die.
A single speceis tank is not a problem unless you want to add so many fish
that they fight amongst each other. Well I hope you can get his problem
worked out, Mark B.
