you should ditch the test strips....they are unreliable and can give false readings...grab a API LIQUID Master Test kit....they are far better off....try and get us an ammonia reading

Some of the test strips don't have Ammonia on them. I used to use strip tests but then I had to buy a separate ammonia test kit so I could find out what the ammonia levels in my tank were. At that point, I stopped buying the strip tests and I started using dropper tests. IMO, dropper test kits are more accurate than the strips.

It's possible that some of your other fish may start nipping at the angelfish. Their long fins make them a target for nipping and tiger barbs are notorious fin nippers. Google "Tiger barbs and angelfish", they're usually not compatible. I have no experience w/ freshwater sharks of any kind, but I think the angelfish are going to have a tough time in your tank.
