I have and 50-55 gal tank. I originally had 2 angels a tiger one and an all black one. They both have 2-3" bodies and bought them same time, same place, same tank. The all black one has become VERY VERY aggressive and has nipped the fins off the tiger and makes him (assuming sex) hide up in the corner of the tank. I went a bought another angel same size as these 2 hoping maybe it will help a little but no change. The black one still has complete control of the tank and the other 2 have to hide in the upper corners. The original bullied angel will attack the new one now and the all black one will go and attack for no apparent reason. The only time the first 2 are ok with each other is feeding time but then they barely let the new angel eat. I also purchased a ton more plants for the bottom of the tank but that is not helping either.
I usually keep Oscasr (which I love) but with the death of my last and favorite one I decided to switch it up...but I think I want my oscars back these angels have given my nothing but problems.
Im not sure whether to purchase more..maybe bigger ones, get different tanks mates to balance aggression (maybe an oscar
) or sell the all black super dominant aggressive one.
I had a single very large angel fish about 5 years ago I got from a friend and kept it in a tank with a large single oscar and a pleco with no problems. Thats about the extent of the angel experience.
please help...Im at a loss for ideas and im starting to stress as much as the fish...I dont want anybody bullied to death..I would like a nice peacefull balanced tank but dont know how to go forward from here.
