Well just went to lfs to get a few loaches and took the wide and kids...big mistake. Ended up with angelfish I'm usually against impulse buying without research anyway the tag said blue jean angelfish...dont see any blue though. Need some pointers they are gonna go in the 30 until I get caponr out of the 55. Need some pointers hopefully jack or big ken will chime in

Ive only ever owned 2 angel fish and that was for my turtle tank.. it was very warm water… dirty water due to 2 10 inch turtles and a 2 ft pleco… and 1 managed to survive a whole year and i didn't take care of it like i should have to be honest so i think they pretty hard fish despite the look of them..

one was eaten by the turtles 10 seconds after he was put in the tank :(

funny how the smaller lighter coloured one survived lol

Well, that ^ was depressing to read.

I guess your plans on what to do for the 55 gal kinda took care of themselves huh Frank? :P

I don't know too much about them except that they like soft, warm water (around 27C, so 82F?), and shouldn't be kept with anything aggressive.

No expert, but I've managed to keep mine alive for awhile now and help my Mom with hers. Big Ken and Darth have helped a lot. Personally I would make sure they stay in a tank specific tank, the only other fish with mine is a rainbow shark and from what I've heard that's iffy. I just haven't had any issues yet. High veggie diet, don't like water changes, and kind of mean if given the chance. They will create a pecking order in the tank, how many did you get?? Pics?

I am, but we're at my Dad's so it's a pretty laid back vacation! LOL! The blues are beauties, from what I understand they'll get bluer as they grow. I keep my PH around 6.8 and temperature at 80. I've tried 78, they weren't as full of themselves at that temp though. I feed them Life Spectrum cichlid pellets every now and then and veggie cichlid flakes. I've had them in the past and fed regular tropical fish food and they were nowhere near as happy or healthy. Ken probably knows why, lol. Can't wait to see pics, ooh I love me some angelfish! !
