That's good to hear about the bala looking better. When my puffers got ich it stressed me out more than them i think lol. They made it through rather unscathed thankfully.

As far as angels go, I have freshwater angels in my 75 gallon and i adore them. They have such personalities, but you really need a large tank for them and they are shoaling fish so atleast 5 is recommended. And they all should be purchased at the same time. I'll tell ya, I had 5 and I'm down to 3 because my female Jezabelle is so dominant that she literally bullied 2 of them to death. It seems the 3 remaining get along rather well. Definitely a hoot to watch. The seem so peaceful and docile until you see another fish encroaching on their territory lol. I'm also pretty positive that Jezabelle is solely responsible for 2 black neon tetras disappearance. And a platy.....

I'm getting ready to start a saltwater venture. I've been researching for months and months. It can be very expensive so make sure you are financially ready.

what are your current water conditions? as in most recent test readings? Ammonia, nitrite, nitrate? Anything else about your tank look off? Even the smallest detail..? Also what temp is the water and how often are your water changes + what % change have you been doing ?

All the water conditions are good to excellent the temp has been fluctuating between 86&89 . Everything else looks normal even the ich spots look to be going away he only has a few spots left and nobody else in the tank seems to be showing signs of having it

"good to excellent" is not really an answer - what are the actual numeric results for ammonia, nitrite, nitrate?
