Yes, I have read that, hoping I won't have to remove the angel but have another tank available if I do. hey, that's another good reason to have to set up the other tank! If I had my choice I'd have 3 or 4 tanks around the house. Just picked up a nice 35 gal hexagon setup for my daughter and her girls, they love watching my fish so I decided to get them their own

Yes, I checked everywhere. Moved any hiding spot they might be in. They were always hanging out in the corner together, mostly in plain sight. Now I realize the corner they liked was the furthest one away from the Dragon Goby!

Errrm .... Angelfish are quite peaceful fish, if kept properly. They will eat small torpedo like fish though, for example Neon Tetra, but they will not touch larger tetras or fish like Harlequin Rasbora.

They are a shoaling fish, so need to be in numbers of 4 or more, but 5 or more is better. As a single fish, they'll be stressed and stress is a sure way to make any fish aggressive.

They only turn aggressive when mating, and even then only to keep fish away from their eggs.

This is getting off topic on the original poster though.

Off topic or not, help is always appreciated! I found at least one other bbg. So hopefully the other one is in there somewhere! It's easy to lose a bbg in a 75g tank. I think they may be losing they're sociable behavior with age and turning into the territorial squabbling neighbors that want distance between them that I've read them to be.

MTS......"would that be multiple tank syndrome" lol if so....I have a 20 gallon sitting on my deck waiting for me to clean and set up....yes I think I already have MTS!! Hubby will be crying till the "cows come home" although he bought me my 55 gallon years ago, he should have known I would eventually get more
