Haha. My husband IS squeamish and for such reasons I now have my own blender just for fish food. When raising ACF I would add a feeding once daily of "Bloodworm Broth" to their feeding schedule - defrost a cube of bloodworm in a little less than a cup of water (just enough so that the blender could whip it around) and press LIQUIFY - - had a lot of success with my ACF this way.

He said they're on crushed flakes right now. I do have frozen brine shrimp, bloodworms and krill. So they're diet won't be just the flakes I have. I also have the regular tropical flakes and veggie flakes from Omega One.

Sounds good! They make look a little lost in the 75 gallon and I'm a bit worried that their low level output of ammonina + plants will stall out or at least significantly lengthen your cycling time. That many peasized angels won't really be putting out that much ammonia to kick start a colony until they are much bigger. Keep an eye on water stats so that Nitrite doesn't spike on you.

I've been planning on adding 3 kuhlis and 6-ish cory cats
I may wait a week-ish to see how they go and possibly add more fishys.

Make sure the tank is not only well cycled but established before adding the corys; they are highly sensitive to unstable water. And a group of five minimum, though more is better and you have the room.

Kuhli are also best in a group, and do better with a sand substrate, and they need lots of hiding spots like chunks of bogwood with tunnels. Otherwise you won't see them.

Yes. I've done quite a bit of research on the fish I plan to stock in the 75 gallon. I think I would add the Kuhli's 1st after I establish some "Kuhli only" hidys. I've been planning on getting some large, soft and well rounded rocks and siliconing them together to make a hidy with small openings between each rock.

Whichever fish I add next would depend on what happens with the angels, what plants I have gotten in the tank and what not.


Thanks again for all the responses. Again, I really appreciate it. :)
