Angels

Hello,
I'm curious, what is the average size of your Angel Fish? I have heard that they can get up to 6" and then I've read that most now don't get over 4". That's a pretty big difference in size. Those of you that have them and they're adults, what is the average size?
Thanks,
D

I have 3 juveniles in my 36 gal bow front. Both LFS that I go to told me that that number is okay. Matter of fact, I specifically asked them how many I could have and that was the answer from both. I guess if they get too big, I'll have to rehome. I love them though and I have a really peaceful tank with tetras, rasboras, corey catfish & platys.

The Angels are pretty small right now....
Thanks.
D

My over 6" Marble Attila. He was tiny when I got him and now he's a big boy. He's boss of the tank.

Sadly, I lost all three of mine along with all of my neons due to an unexplained PH spike. I also lost one platy and the whole weekend was miserable. My tank is stable again with a PH of around 7.6, 0 ammonia, 0 nitrites and although everyone tells me it's bad I also have 0 nitrates with a planted tank. Do you think I should get another one (or two?) angels with the PH at 7.6 stable?
