Not sure if you meant to say 55g, but the tank that i want am planning on getting is 120g, which is double, and double of 5-6 is 10-12. I know thats not how it works, but i thought 8 would be a good amount? just asking for some clarification :)

THANKS! This forum is so much help, i have no clue what i would do without you guys!
My apology, I did get the tank size mixed up; too many threads at once.

Well, make sure you really have a buyer first, as 15 angels will be a problem in a 125g when full grown. I have a 5-foot 115g and I cannot imagine more than 7 in there.

if you ask im sure they would. Most LFS' will buy stuff for store credit, not much, but maybe enough for another fish.

Definitely. Last time I went their they said they accepted donations and possibly start throwing store credit if you donate fish frequently or enough of them I think....I hope...lol

I'm gonna have so many baby mollies I need to have some way of getting rid of them. I at least know I can donate them if it comes to the fishes health.

Most true fish stores (not chain stores) will sometimes take fish, depending what the species is. Aquarists who raise fish sell them to some stores, for cash or credit towards other fish or dry goods. A species like Altum Angels would usually be accepted, if the store does this to begin with, since these are very rare and very expensive.
