I am new to the forums and am enjoying everything here very much!
I come from Latvia, it is in North-East Europe. I have had some aquariums since childhood. Back then I had a funny 10-litre tank (I understand that it was a torture chamber for my pets, but I was only 9 years old and my parents didn't have a clue). Now I am a happy owner of two comfy aquariums, not overcrowded and carefully looked after by my husband, daughter and myself.
Since one of our two VERY OLD (I wonder how long they really live) angelfishes passed away we have been looking for some company for the remaining one. He (or she) did not accept any other angels, chasing and biting them around. So we had to put them in the other tank. I have bought some Sumatra barbs instead just to have some movement and stripes. The angel does not hurt them at all. They may bite his fins though.
The problem is that only when I brought them home I saw that two of them have only one eye! One of the one-eyed bandits is an albino. I wonder how it could happen. Were they born like this or somebody crippled them? They seem to be quite healthy, but I don't know what to expect.
