freshwater fish - pterophyllum scalare - half black angelfish stocking in 20 gallons tank - This is my bigger angel... Phone pic so not that great. This was him at 1.25 inches! He was sooo cute!

More Info

State: Colorado
Country: United States
Description: Its a 20 High tank, average Dimensions. A RENA Powerfilter 80gal/hr. 18 inch bubble bar. Submersable Heater ( Constant 78 degrees).
Advice: I can use advice better then I can give it, but that doesn't stop me from trying!
Fish Kept: 2 Angelfish, 6 Neon and 1 Glowlight tetra ( I know it sounds cruel, but its all that survived my initial learning and they school together well), 1 freshwater crab, 2 algea eaters...
Corals/Plants: 1 Water lily, 1 amazon sword, 1 stemmed plant of unknown nomenclature!

About Yourself: I have been doing this for about 5 months now and I am getting better! I absolutely despise the pics I have here and they will be updated! The 20 high is less of an abomination than it was, and the 55 will be even better yet!
