What would you do in my situation? I want to do this right and not put to much stress on the fish and the aquarium.
By the way, I bought two 50lbs bags of Playsand from H.Depot a few minutes ago(Is this Enough?). I just have to go pick it up now. The only problem is I'm at work right now. 16 hrs shifts all the way up to Christmas eve...
That's plenty of sand. You'll have some left over, this is always handy. I frequently add a cup or two of sand in the back corners, as sand shifts over time (so does gravel for that matter). About 2-3 inches overall (spread evenly) is what you want, then push it higher in the back.
I would put the angels in last, and all together. This way they are going into a new environment where other fish are present, and this is more likely to prevent excessive territoriality which could happen if they are alone.
Once the plants are in, add the fish. Add complete groups of a species at the same time. A few days between additions is being cautious, but if you're comfortable doing that, fine. It partly depends upon the planting, and any introduced bacteria on wood from an established tank.
