Looks nice. Do you have a full tank shot?

Is the turtle going to come out eventually? It may eat your tetras.

Very pretty.

Very nice tank, but i just want to add, once your angels get larger they will more than likely eat your neons, if your turtle dont get them first....In the wild, neons are a food source for angelfish

I'm partial to red tail sharks-you have a nice one in that tank.

Yeh it was def something I was worried about although and I'm sure to be corrected? if the tetras are in the tank when the angels are only small and growing then they tend to not bother them?.:|

in my experience that will only work for so long till your angels start eyeing the neons as food, your angels are small, but eventually when they reach a certain size and reconize them as a snack.......Some people claim to have it work if the angels are small, but they are cichlids, and the old saying, if it fits in the fishes mouth.........

Give it a try for now, if one neon dissappears, i would rehome somebody quick!.......Good Luck!
