Hi there British (and others...)

Just read about your incident and although I do sympathize with you regarding these fish, I do feel you are possibly taking it a little too personally. At 15 years old this will be one of MANY time you will encounter people who JUST DONT CARE. You need to find a way to deal with it because you only have one good hand left...LOL...which brings me to my next more serious issue...How is your hand? What did the x-rays show? Going to be difficult to work on your tanks and not get your cast wet...

Off topic: You went vegan when you were 9??? What got you into that, I thought I was hardcore because I went vegetarian at 11 but I've only been vegan for two years and I'm 18 now. I would be careful about how you associate your self with peta, Ingrid is insane and everyone knows. Usually once you say you're a proud member of peta your argument gets thrown out the window, it's better to fight the eco way. More people listen when you say the beef industry pumps out more green house gases annually then all the cars in the world. A lot of people truly don't care about farm animals, just my two cents anyways, peta doesn't know how to get peoples attention without offending them therefore turning them off of our lifestyle.

Edit: Out of all my years punching holes in walls and the odd concrete one, I've never managed to break my fist. I do have some misshaped knuckles though... Lol wait maybe I did do something to it I never actually get it checked out, ice does wonders.

Hate to hear that about the 14yr old serial killer in the making - seriously someone should report him to a doctor!
Hope all goes well with your new tank tho :)

That was a good post Tetra4life, I really howled. After such sickness earlier it was a bit of relief. Thank you sincerely.

British, on with the tank. Best wishes, Byron.

Reading through previous posts, to sum up I think you (British) are now thinking 4 small angels and a bottom fish? Good idea in my view, although I would go with five angels. And corydoras are excellent tankmates, 3 now and 3 later would work (minimum 3 is best, they are very social and do not do well singly).

Plants like vallisneria and saggitarria, and/or amazon swords, would be good with the angels. The vertical stripe on the angels is camouflage, in their native habitat they live in quiet water among tall plants and twigs, roots, etc., a clue to acquascaping, and in groups.

I concur with earlier suggestions not to mix gouramis or kribs with angels.

Byron.

My hand is completely shattered along with my wrist. Dislocations, snaps and complete shattering. The list of specifics is too long to post. I can manage working on tanks with my left hand. I'm just so indecisive about stocking. :P

I'm sorry to hear about what happened, if I asked someone to look after my tanks and they did that, well I don't think i can say what i would do to them (for legal and morale reasons).

From my experience with gouramis and angels they don't get along unless your tank has alot of swimming space. As for a pair of kribs they would be ok until they try to breed then they will get very aggresive. Red tailed sharks are very aggresive aswell, i don't know why they are 'community' classed fish because my girlfriends sister had a 6.5 foot tank and it was still territorial in that.

Easiest way to sex angels or get a pair is to get 6 to 8 wait for a pair to come from them then return the rest to your lfs, you should probably speak to the manager first about the angels and explain you are tryin to get a pair.
