Oh okay. Just let the background plants grow to the top and get some dwarf lilies would work with the lily pads. Also jungle val would create some over hangs.

It'd probably be best to add all those fish before the Angels get half dollar size because that's when they start getting aggressive. Also, you may want to create visual territories for them. Btw tankman12, I PM'd you and you haven't answered back yet...

Ya it is a great possibility that angels can get aggressive towards new tank mates. But is also not possible, it all depends on the fish. But cories, yoyos, and hatchets stay out of the angels way, so those definitely will not be a problem. Rummies will be in the angels face so i would add them next just to make sure there will be no problems.

Crazed, i just found that. Give me a little bit, im sort of busy. I will get back to you though

Hi crazed yeah I'm adding the fish over the next few weeks the yoyos will be going in tomorrow or Saturday the rummy nose the following weekend week after that will be the hatchets and lastly the corys
Ive been watching my angels closely and certainly are growing fast they have been quite chilled out bar a few rustles here and there between the two larger ones tho unfortunately I fear I may have been given 3 males and one female but as you know quite hard to sex
I have two 30gal and a 16 on standby in case any problems appear anyway but for now alls good
There's 8 guppies with them that I use to cycle tanks tho these will come out when the rummies go in

Hi guys another update added my loaches today and their lovely
Unfortunately two of my angels have paired off today and the male sadly became super aggressive unlike any angel I've seen before was crazy so him and his lady have moved to their own private tank and will soon be upgraded to a nice 30gal hex tank all to themselves
The other 2 angels were a little beaten up tho no permit damage and are very happy just the two of them with the rest of their tank mates
Other than this the tanks progressing nicely and looking forward to adding the rummies
