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.

hhhmmm
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.

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]

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. :)
