New angel fish...help?

Hey,
I'm new to the community tank set up, mostly because my bigger tanks consist mostly of semi-aggressives. However..in my 55 gallon I'm trying to start up a community tank, and hopefully then once they become bigger, move htem over to my 120 gallon.

I'm also new to angels, and the LFS had a bunch of these little guys shoved into a tank, I've only really seen larger specimen at the store, and I'm more interested in starting small..and marvling at the growth of these guys.

They were labelled as"associated angels"...is there a specific breed or is that just a common store brand of angels? I see there are a variety of colourations ect..but I was just curious if anyone more experienced in them could help me out..
They looked a little fin nipped when I got them about a week ago, so we're working on that.


I apologize for the messy tank(Getting your masters in Biology with 4 dogs, a boyfriend and 3 fish tanks is taking its toll) haha hopefully within the next few weeks I can do what I've been planning:)
Thanks again,
Kat

Yeah..I REALLY need to get on it..its just like everytime I try and take a picture of my tanks the flash ect pretty much makes it turn out absolutly horrid..I can't figure out a way to take a good picture like everyone on this site seems to be able to do lol..
I also have some major re-doing to do lol

I ment to put this video in instead of the other one, as its shorter and shows the 3 little guys more closer-ish..let me know if someone can give me a more detailed description of them:)


Thanks:)

Try your macro setting, it worked for me, though I had to look it up in the camera's manuel to find it. :)

Keeping fish its not a hobby it is a passion!

I have MTS and there is no cure.
