I  am  sure  you  will  be  thrilled  to  have  their  company.  I  have  angels  for  a  couple  of  years  now...I  have  a  breeding  pair  too...not  been  successful  to  raise  the  fry  after  free  swimming  stage  Thumb Down  
 
 They  connect  well  with  the  owner  and  are  territorial  to  an  extent...The  fun  begins  when  the  established  pair  gaurds  the  eggs  in  shifts....I  just  love  angels:)                

 
 
 Awesome  fish  bro.  Wish  you  success  in  your  future  breeding  attempts.  Thumb Up

 @kastor
 
 Angelfish  are  among  the  few  cichlids  worth  keeping  for  a  planted  tank  and  peaceful-community-seeker  like  me.  yes  ,  they  are  cichlids,  but  if  managed  well,  easy  to  control.  For  example,  if  u  keep  a  second  tank,  it  will  be  useful  for  re-housing  an  angelfihs  victim  of  bullying  by  other  angelfishes.  u  can  take  the  bullly  out,  keep  him  separate,  then  bring  him  back  2  months  later.  Wonder  of  wonders,  the  old  victim  will  now  bully  him!  then  the  natural  balance  willl  emerge,  because  the  former  bully  now  understands  how  it  feels  to  be  bullied,  and  will  not  bully  as  before!  
 
 other  planted  tanks  cichlids  that  have  responded  very  well  to  me  and  did  well  in  planted  communities  are  dwarf  cichlids  (  rams,  apistos,  kribensis,  pretty  and  interesting  too,  and  breeding  !).  I  am  sure  Discus  are  the  other  peaceful  cichlid  that  will  respond  just  as  well  to  careful  management.  
 
 really  looking  forward  to  how  your  new  experiment  pans  out.  good  luck,  kastor!

 More  interesting  and  less  agrressive  cichlids  not  seen  as  much  but  still  good  for  projects  like  this  are
 
 Mesonauta  festivus  or  Flag  Cichlid  (one  form  i  like  is  light  blue  with  one  stripe  starting  from  eye)
 
 Rainbow  cichlid  (lovley  yellow  beauties)
 
 Keyhole  cichlid  (awesome  shape  and  personality)
 
 if  u  have  kept  them  in  the  past,  tell  us  how  it  was.  ....  if  u  find  them,  make  a  thread  as  nice  as  this  one  Razz

PostPosted: Mon May 07, 2012 10:11 pm Post subject: Re: Angelfishkeeping - A New Beginning 15/04/2012 Reply with quote

 I'm  over  3  weeks  into  Freshwater  Angelfishkeeping.  And  I  am  glad  to  have  decided  to  do  so.
 On  15/04/2012,  I  started  with  8  fish  supposed  to  be  marble  angels,  a  3  foot  barebottom  tank,  33%  daily  water  changes,  a  DIY  1  foot  composite  sponge  filter  and  thrice  daily  exclusive  premium  pellet  feeds.
 I'd  codenamed  my  fish  as  Panda,  Snow  Leopard,  Two  Face,  Black  Marble,  Batman,  Grayscale,  Black  Stripo  and  Blackie.
 But  3  days  later,  when  I  visited  the  LFS  again,  I  fell  for  2  other  angels,  a  marble  and  a  gold.  So  I  got  these  guys  in  replacement  for  Black  strippo  and  Blackie.
 I  named  the  marble  as  'Bluefin'  and  the  Gold  as  'Rabbit  Ear'.
 Initially,  all  my  angels  swam  together  as  a  shoal,  obviously  a  defensive  instinct  in  an  alien  environment.  They  swam  together  and  fed  together.  (  I  love  the  way  they  feed  at  all  levels  of  the  tank.  First,  they  capture  food  from  the  top,  then  chew  it  and  spit  it  out  and  chew  it  again  till  it  gets  softened  and  broken  down  into  swallowable  bits.  Its  like  two  soccer  players  passing  the  ball  to  each  other.  Then  they  eat  the  sunken  bits  off  the  bottom  of  the  tank  like  cattle  grazing  in  the  fields.  Not  even  a  single  grain/particle  is  wasted.  )  But  as  they  got  used  to  their  new  home,  transient  minor  conflicts  occurred  over  space  and  food.  Snow  Leopard  was  initially  at  the  top  of  the  pecking  order.  Then  Rabbit  Ear  took  over  for  a  couple  of  days.  Then  it  was  Snow  Leopard  again.  But  other  than  feeding  time,  they  live  in  harmony.
 As  days  went  by  and  they  stabilized,  they  started  displaying  an  array  of  colours  -  yellow,  orange,  copper,  blue,  green,  grey,  violet,  peacock  blue,  etc.  Grayscale,  who  had  the  blandest  colours  of  the  entire  lot  was  now  the  most  colourful.  This  was  new  for  me.  I  always  thought  that  marble  angels  are  supposed  to  be  black  and  white  with  a  hint  of  yellow.  During  my  study  breaks,  I  surfed  angelfish  forums  and  consulted  angelfish  experts  to  seek  more  info  on  this.  During  this,  I  came  across  vast  pools  of  information  on  angelfish  genetics  and  emerging  trends.  Dr.  Joanne  Norton's  articles  were  the  most  enlightening.  Based  on  my  newfound  knowledge,  I  realised  that  my  fish  weren't  merely  Marble  angels.  They  had  a  blend  of  various  other  genes/traits.  Gold  (G),  Smokey  (Sm)  and   Pinoy/Philippine/Platinum  Blue  (pb)  were  the  genes  responsible  for  the  non-black&white  colouration.
 As  the  days  pass  by,  I  am  learning  some  new  things  about  these  beautiful  fish.  While  following  the  traditional  rules,  I  am  also  trying  some  new  stuff.  I'll  report  my  findings  once  my  experiment  succeeds  or  fails.
 I'll  be  posting  further  updates  only  after  finishing  my  exams  in  June.
 Till  then,  enjoy  these.

 Here's  a  quick  1  month  update  of  my  angelfish.  I'm  left  with  only  6  now  as  Rabbit  Ear  and  Batman  got  abducted  by  my  uncle  for  his  "Black  &  White"  display.
 I'll  replace  them  with  silvers  soon  (once  I  lay  my  hands  on  some  good  ones).  I'll  let  the  pictures  do  the  talking.  Do  comment  on  their  development.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 This  one's  for  the  Pleco  fans  out  there.
 Have  I  outgrown  my  home?

 Also  help  me  in  deciding  the  colour  of  the  background,  based  on  the  present  colouration  of  my  fish.  
 Should  I  re-install  my  conventional  white  background  or  should  I  go  for  a  Black/Brown  background?  
 I  am  more  inclined  towards  a  dark  brown  one.  What  is  your  take  on  it?

 I  have  black  background  for  my  angelfish  tank....
 It  looks  nice....  Smile  
   I  use  some  drift  wood  and  subdued  lighting  so  that  the  color  of  driftwood  ,  the  angel  and  the  background  color  are  in
 balance  ....  
 Besides  IMO  angels  don't  like  lots  of  light  so  a  darker  background  should  benefit....  Very Happy  
 So  why  don't  you  try  using  a  black  background....
 Good  luck....  Thumb Up  
 Keep  posting....

 Substrate  and  driftwood  will  have  to  wait.  Now's  growth  time.
 So  I  take  it  that  reinstalling  my  white  background  has  been  voted  out  unanimously.   Dog  
 A  dark  background  it  shall  be.  But  the  question  remains................Black  or  Brown  ?   (  Or  rather  a  dark  shade  of  maroon,  now  that  I  come  to  think  of  it.  Hmm....  )   Rolling Eyes

 Hi!  Greetings.  I've  myself  brought  a  few  angels  over  the  past  week.  Altum  1st  copies  and  Marble  angels.  The  tank  size  is  36x15x18.  They  are  housed  presently  with  Harlequins  and  Otto.  Looking  for  more  Harlequins  to  add  some  activity  in  the  tank.  It  will  be  a  densely  planted  tank  in  over  a  period  of  time.  My  background  as  of  now  is  black  which  gives  a  good  contrast  to  all  the  livestock  and  hardware  in  the  tank.  Would  suggest  you  go  with  a  dark  shade  from  a  photographic  perspective.
