A buddy I work with was wanting to tear down his tank but he had two fish left in it; an Angelfish and a Clown Loach. I figured I would take the Angelfish so that it would eat some of my guppies. I didn't really want the clown loach because of how big they get but he was going to flush them so I figured why not. I can always re-home the loach to my friends 125g when it gets bigger.
The Angel is pretty large actually, I'd say 4.5" from top to bottom. The fish itself looks about 3" in diameter. The clown loach is right around 1.5" and is fairly skinny. I fed him some shrimp pellets and he was gobbling those up faster than any fish I have ever seen.
I'm not sure what type of angel it is, a marble? It has a really small patch of orange on top of its head, right above his eyes.
In the bag with the loach, notice the orange above his eye.
Clown Loach still in bag, could not get a better picture, sorry.
Angel released into the 10g. This is only temporary to see if he or she will eat some of the guppy fry.
I plan on getting rid of the guppies (free pickup in pittsburgh) one way or another and starting over with the 10 gal
, upgrading the lights and trying a heavily planted tank with shrimp or smaller fish.
