New guy!

Hey everyone,
Im an aussie just starting out with a 120L tank.
Had some trouble cycling until i upgraded my filter to an Eheim classic and my tank fully cycled in under 2 weeks from there. I now have 3 angels 2 guppys to keep the misses happy and an amazing albino longfin bristlenose. When i introduced my longfin the angels (already established in the tank) seemed very intrigued and nibbled at it a bit. I kept a close eye for about an hour to make sure there wasnt too much bullying. Are angles territorial or were they just being inquisitive? Should i be concerned?

The other thing is feeding the longfin. Should i feed it or is it happy just to cruise around the tank and feed off the algae etc.?

Any comments/tips are welcome im very excited to join this community

Thanks, Adam.

I'm pretty sure angels are territorial, and can be bullies. I haven't dealt with ones in saltwater, but the ones I've had in freshwater tanks can be bossy, particularly with other angels. Welcome to the site; I am new to this site today myself!

I have a longfin albino BN too! She loves cucumbers. I feed her everyday and she is always very interested, despite keeping my 55 gallon fancy goldfish tank pretty immaculate.
