Flame & Coral Beauty angels

I am getting a flame and a coral beauty angel. I have been told to introduce them simultaneously... Does this literally mean the same day? Or can I do them a day apart? What's the best?

Also try to ensure that both fish are net caught not cyanide caught. Many dwarf angels caught with cyanide rarely last more than a few months in the home aquarium due to liver damage.

I know it's a 50/50 chance the LFS will be honest with you, but it's worth asking..

Cheers
Steve

What type of food have you been using?

I would never recommend it for a daily diet but brine shrimp soaked in a few drops of garlic can be a great enticement for finicky eaters. Once the coral beauty is eating and adjusted to the tank, it can usually be weined to more nutritious foods without problem.

Cheers
Steve

I use a mix of sponge based, mysid, and brine... with algae attached to a rock and algae flakes...

I'll try that tonight...

But, what is so bad about brine? I have "enriched" brine... it has vitamins and spirulina...and some other things

Enriched or fortified foods are fine. Most regular brine in stores is void of any real nutrition. It's like giving candy to kids, they'll eat it all day and get nothing from it. It is also low in usable protein. Mysis shrimp is much better if you feel the need to feed meaty foods.

Personally I only feed fortified flakes on a regular basis. A few different types alternating each on different days. A meat style flake and spurlina. It is very healthy for the fish, will not promote intestinal ailments like frozen meats and will also not pollute the tank as easily.,

What you are doing now is fine, just not my preference...

Cheers
Steve

the flame is doing fine. but the coral is hiding in the rocks...it didn't appear that she was being harassed when she was out, but I'm probably mistaken... any ideas?

rearrange rocks to "un establish" territories. If that does not work, take one back.
two dwarf angels in the same tank normally is not a good idea.
