    That would be pretty epic! You could have a pretty large school of angelfish in a tank big enough for BGK.

    Awesome!! So glad that your resealing worked! Would you do it again for another large tank at a reduced price?
    Rock hunting, eh? Be careful, when they decide to run, they can really make a break for it! Bring a big net!! :D

    Yes BGK and Angelfish would be an epic South American 'tope!

    And yup, holds water! So pleased! We bought the sand today, going rock hunting tomorrow.

    Never knew BGK's were South American. That would be a pretty awesome tank!
    So how did it go? Does the 90 hold water?

    Hah, yes we shall need an angel fish/black ghost knife biotope in the house next.
    Looks like we're sticking to Africa, at least that's good. The tank's all sealed up so wish me luck with it!

    Awww :( I'm sorry. Well that just gives you another excuse to make another tank! ;)

    No angel fish with bichir.
    What a bummer.

    I can imagine with colors like that, they would be expensive. But they are really impressive. To hell with a biotope if you can throw something that beautiful in there! Hope Taz's answer is what you're looking for! I've got my fingers crossed.

    I knowwww those are soo gorgeous! I'll ask Tazman about it. Hopefully I could find some here. Angels are pretty popular round here. But those colours are expensive but it's worth it!

    Haha! Well if he does it you are more than welcome to do it!

    I never knew angels could be that beautiful. Discus are my favorite of the SA cichlids, but those things are making me rethink that. I'm astounded. And I also see why you want to break the biotope.

    I'd ask about the buffalo head and congo tetra. Getting rid of the ctenopoma sounds like a good idea if you go with the angels. The only things I've heard about them is that they are aggressive.

    Yea, I've seen Heiko Bleher (most famous biotope guy in the world) put sword tails in his African tanks.
    I've found these and just love them:

    Nerrr... I wanna try it. BUT the buffalo heads are cichlids. Problem? Can't get rid of the buffalos. And the ctenopoma is an anabantid. But I'm kind of okay about getting rid of the ctenopoma since it may be my biggest problem. But maybe I should bother.
    I think angels and congos would both fit, maybe.....
