British, I didn't try to pair up the fish. I had a 20g and I adopted 4 angelfish (long story). One of the angelfish died a couple of days after I adopted them, but the other 3 lived. They were kind of small when I got them, maybe quarter-sized. I kept the 3 angelfish and eventually 2 of them paired up (I had them for about 10 months before they paired up). I had always wanted to upgrade to a larger tank, so that was my opportunity to do so. The two paired angelfish became VERY VERY aggressive with the 3rd one. I got the 75g up and cycled, then I transfered them in. They've been in the new tank for 3 weeks now. The spawning pair were always aggressive towards the 3rd one, even after I put them into the larger tank and even when they weren't spawing. I ended up buying 3 more angelfish from a breeder near me because I heard it may slow down the aggression. So now the 3rd angelfish paired w/ one of the new angelfish. Now I have 2 pairs of fish that are just vicious.

Maybe I'll just get the three angels, and give one away when/if they pair?

And I'm on an iTouch so I can use one hand.

I was refering to the ceramicus decorachromis (the "glass fish"), it's a joke.

As far as my stocking goes, I will be removing the Ceramicus Decoramicus and adding four juvenile Angels and two Apple Snails. Once/If two pair off, I will give the other two to my LPS for free. My ten gallon is going to Amaro, my Betta.

Although, I don't know if I want such an agressive fish.... If I can find a pair of Kribs at my local LFSs what would be good tankmates? I'm so indecisive when it comes to these things. Or are there any other fish you would suggest? Keep in mind this is a 32 gallon 36'' x 14" x ? (Sorry about the ? But as you can see, the width varies due to the shape.) I'm working with a budget of anywhere from $55-$40 to purchase these fish.
