You have some really nice aquariums! And it is addicting!

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned stocking the two sharks in your tank. This will not work. As they mature, the tank will be lovely for one, but not for two. Their aggression levels with get crazy. You might think about taking one back.

Welcome to the forum!

Really? That's what I thought. I did ask when I bought them at petsmart and they told me it should not be a problem in a 80G tank. So far they are ok, we'll see in the future.
If he does not beheive he is going to the sump! Lol

It's quite possible that your particular PetsMart does not have knowledgeable employees in the fish department.

So the tank IS fully cycled or cycling? We can help you with stocking once that's finished. I would seriously reconsider the sharks, but that's just me, I don't really care for them. Personally I like the looks of large schools rather than a few large fish. Your angels will get big, then you can find a few species compatible with them to keep in large numbers, you certainly have the room for it!
