Np Sirrance, I've had people refer to hex tanks and it turns out to be three panels in the front but flat sides and backs, just wanted check.

I've always thought hex tanks are neat to play with regarding swimming levels of the stock

An Angelfish will get the size of a woman's medium/large hand man's small hand. You can hold a hand up to the tank spread out or both hands and play swimming Angel and get feel of how squished/or much room it will have.

A young fish growing up in a smaller space /tank will not as likely grow to his full potential as one growing up in a larger tank (with same GOOD water parameters and quality food).

Congrats on getting a new larger tank!


New to FW fish? First tank in a long time or EVER??? Need some info on keeping fish?
