here is my 25g angle fish tank, i just finished planting my piranha tank but due to green water outbreak i havent been able to get a good picture yet, but i should solve the problem soon enough. (i dont have enough time for all my tanks so i tend to just let them ballance out over time... im in no rush)

how many angelfish do you have in there? i hope you realize that they are territorial and can reach lengths up to 6 inches. From the pics i saw 2 angels, if theres 2 theyll probally be fine for life in there. and i saw some neons/cardinals, sorry to tell you but they may end up as lunch someday.

awesome looking tank though

Ty,
Angel fish actually grow up to 12" from fin to fin and mine are a breeding pair so they have already staked out a territory, the guppies get the wost of it and sometimes loose a bit of fin but they provide plenty of live food for the angels to hunt. i know the endlers and the neons will have to move but i might have a tank for them in the near future.
thanks dippy about the suggestion :thumbup: i will have to try and find some
it needs a trim so you can see all the red the stem plants

i have one question the leaves of the lilly have been getting tiny holes in them that get bigger over time, i am sure this is a nutrient problem but im not sure what im missing any ideas?

angelfish may grow to 12 inches in the wild but czptive species very rarely exceed 5 inches......where did you here they can grow to 12 inches?

my friend has 4 in a 180g that are about 9"
and just about every angel fish breeder i have talked to says that their fish always exceed 10"
maybe the cheap ones from walmart may not get that big but good quality ones in my experience with enough room get very large.

might be a K, or N defficiency. It also can be a water flow problem, or CO2. If non- CO2, try some seachems equalibrium

it actually has no pot or any growing medium it grows all air roots, its a bit to dry in my room so im going to have to put it inside a very large pot with a bit gravel and water at the bottom to increase hummidity for the roots.
