Thank you, Romad. If you look at my other board, you can see the fish he had in there and the effort I was making to save them. Located here: http://www.fishforum.com/freshwater-...estions-27569/

Here is the tank and the three glass fish.(:










I'm sorry about the size, I have no idea how to fix that. Here are some photographs of my lovely boy, Castiel. (pronounced Cass-tea-L)







He is to be moved into a 1 gallon vase this weekend and has an affinity for staring down the gravel. I love my little guy.(:

I have a single krib in my 55g which has 3 angels with no issue. Krib was introduced several weeks ago.

I wouldn't recommend a pair of kribs though... if they pair up they could start attacking all their tankmates.

It all depends on the personality of the fish, I guess. Are there any other fish similar to Kribs that would breed and are compatable with a pair of Angels?

So sorry to hear what you went through today. I am glad that you now, do not have a reason to go over there. Who knows what crazy thing that boy will do next!

I know bettas and gouramis are not a good mix.
I have heard mating angles can get pretty nasty, so I think sticking with some type of bottom fish would be a good plan. You could just start out with three cory, then add the others later when you have the money.

Your tank looks very nice. When you said glass fish, I thought you where talking about alive fish. There are fish called glass fish, but your glass fish are very cute and I do not think they will give you any compatibility problems. lol

Also, that is one healthy looking betta you have, very pretty!

Hmm, how does this sound?

3 Angels (they are the size of a dime at the moment)
1 Dwarf Gourami
2 Mystery Snails
5 Corydoras

Thank you, Twistersmom. I'm thinking about using my 10 gallon as a divided tank for my boy and a female companion for him. Then another male it is for the vase.(:

I'm very angry at this man. Thanks to him I just broke my hand. I furious. I'm shaking and about to be on my way to the ER to get a cast. I punched a solid cement wall out of my anger. I feel so ignorant for not rescuing these fish sooner. I'm having a very hard time living with myself at the moment. I don't understand how someone could do that to the poor creatures! Ugh this makes me so angry. I've never been angry like this in my life. I'm a calm person believe it or not and am anti-violence. This is just on my last nerve, though!

If you broke your hand you wouldn't be able to type a coherent paragraph like that. Doesn't hurt to get it checked out though.

Don't take it personally... you did what you had to do.

Whoa, three ceramicus decorachromis is way to much for that tank! Plus they will need brackish when mature.

And on a seirous note don't be to hard on your self, there is nothing you can due to end ignorance in the world. hope your fist heals fully and good luck with the angels!
