no secrets - should have a tall aquarium because angels' fins get 6" high, clean water, good food - flake or frozen, and that should do it!

1 29g - one red tailed shark, an opaline gourami, and a bristlenose pleco

Right, no secrets. Angels need the same clean water that everyone else needs. But they have a fin height of more than 6"... more like a body height of 6" and a fin height of about 10". They can live for 15 years or more with proper care! You can click on the shaded name of Pterophyllum Scalare to learn more.

Angels are my favorite, and I'm always willing to help someone out with them.
