Rescued an Angel
1 Attachment(s)
Ok this is unbelieveable. So I'm selling girl scout cookies with my 5 year old daughter and we go to this house, get invited in and in the living room is a ten gallon tank (Yes 10 gallon!) with this huge Angel. This thing is a beast, so I start talking to the lady and told her a little about keeping fish and what not. She said her son gave it to her a few month's ago when his tank broke. Long story short I ended up buying it from her for 5 dollars. Picked it up today and am acclimating it now. Here's a pick, I will take a few more tonight so yo can get a true perspective of the size of this thing.

hope it gets along with the other angels! i got two from a person who kept them in 5 gallons with a cory and a swordtail last summer

That is a good sized Angel. Be willing to bet he/she is really enjoying to extra swimming space.

My black marble and the new one have been by each others side since I introduced it to the tank. My smaller koi I will be taking back to the pet store cause the other 2 are chasing it around and won't let it near them.
