Go with a deeper sand, a garden eel garden would be unique.

I used to keep freshwater eels years ago and they always found a way out of the tank. :-(

Do I need a deep sand bed for anglers? I am hoping to hit a fishie store tomorrow and will ask about special ordering a pair, if possible. And who knows what else I may come home with!! Hopefully something lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I can't think of any reason why you would need a DSB for them.
I would suggest maybe some macro algae or even fake plants to make them more comfy as I think they like to hang out among seaweed/algae.


One store I go to occasionally seems to always have them in. I will pick the owners brain for any tips next time I am in there.

Good luck! Hopefully you will find something fun and can get the Angelers you want, they are such interesting little creatures!

Thanks guys. I slacked off today and didnt get out, choose to sleep all day instead. lol

Hoping for tomorrow. I am getting a little excited at the prospect of angler(s). They are something that I have never kept before. With all the tanks I have/had I think I have had most every fish out there. lol Of course I have my favorites, which I stock every tank with, like clowns and hawkfish but this seems like a really awesome setup to have. Cant wait!

We all need to have those relaxing days to refuel. I've never kept an Angler either, they are such interesting fish! Do you remember that one someone had on here way back when that was white and maybe orange (Maybe it was Hondatek or TLTGF)? anyone, that one had great color!
