I have a couple of pieces of 24" manzanita that is supposed to come Tuesday as well.

Excited to see it coming together!
I'm excited for you. My 4 Angels are so beautiful but I wish I could give a couple to you. There are no sex organs showing yet, but I think I got 1 female and 3 males. They have begun to have the most violent swirling fights. They don't actually harm each other but what I assume is the dominant male has 2 of them cornered. He won't let them out to eat. I started leaving the canister filter on when I feed them now to make sure they all can eat...and they do. I've kept and even bred Angles for 3 decades and never saw this behavior. They are really acting like ciclids...that's for sure. Didn't want a 2nd tank these days, bu I think I'm heading there.

Picked up two angels today! A koi and a silver zebra. They are small - they also had a very pretty golden but it was bigger so I want sure if it would work to get him as well.

Corydoras should be coming end of the week. The zebra is swimming around, but so far the koi has only hid by a rock. But it has only been in 2 hours.

Keeping a specific shirt, smock, or hat can also help them to identify you. They can see color by the way. They look great.

You're welcome. I have been keeping (and used to breed) angels for 30 years. I currently have 2 koi with beautiful orange mixed with their black and white markings, one solid blond with even darker yellow on her head, one striped, and I just added a baby about the size of a nickel that is completely silver. So I'm still an angel fish lover and keeper. I used to keep Discus too, but on a fixed income now, can't afford them now. I will attach pics of my Angels, but keep in mind my camera isn't very good.Click image for larger version

Thanks for sharing the pics! I guess mine is more of a marbled than a koi. They are getting a little more comfortable though as I've seen then swimming around together.

Aquascape picture update since I added a bubble wand and the manzanita came in today Will probably space out the plants and maybe play with the rockwork some more. Cory cats delivered tomorrow!

The tank is beautiful and the cories will love digging in the sand substrate. The air wand is a nice touch.

Really nice Cory Cats. They sure look well fed and have a very sharp color pattern. Good breeder.
