But at this rate cories and German blue rams are the only tankmates my angels don't pick off one by one.
Aww thats a bummer i wanted to add angels .. i figured that though so i decided to up my cories and add another group of cories . Tryin to decide on tank mates now... but my cories are my fav

I believe my angels would have been fine with any other tank mates but I made the mistake of adding the angels first then slowly trying to stock with others. I tried cardinal tetras and a school of 10 was down to 4 within maybe 6weeks. But the cardinals were juveniles and my angels are not babies anymore. My Lfs had really large black neons so I'm going try those next. If they don't work I'll move em to another tank.needless to say if you add little angels to a tank with others I think they would be fine when raised among them.

When the timed lights came on to the now clearer tank, what did I see?

All I can figure is it had been "living" in the filter. Poor thing was VERY skinny. I scooped him up and he is now in the 12 gallon nursery tank.
Omg! Poor little fishy! I hope he pulls through.

RED Lazer Cory

Oh forgot to mention,

Saw a really awesome fish. LFS had Red Lazer Cories. They look a little darker body and the lazer is red-orange (in lfs tank) maybe it would even be darker in a secure, calm environment.
