Angles have quite the personality, like bettas! I would love some! Just can't wait for the day when I can have a 55 gallon. Rummynose tetras and maybe some angels, maybe not because angels Luis eat them and rummynoses already school tightly... Rambling lol.

Glad Sparky ate his expensive pellet, I would be mad if he didn't!

So can you get plants or no?

I'll have to get a new light fixture for plants so for now, they're all fake. Good thing I had enough in storage.

My dad loves angels so if I can put some in there, that would be great. So I'm hoping Sparky is a sociable, calm type of electric catfish.

He breaks the filter intake off sometimes trying to squeeze behind it and he pushes the sand around a little. I'd probably have to pot any plants. There's less than a 1/2 inch of sand in there so I don't know if he burrows or not.

That reminds me of a huge pleco that my friends mom accidentally killed (she dumped in a bunch of aquarium sand when he was in there, didn't let it settle and it clogged up his gills), he messed up one of their filters but they managed to fix it. He also destroyed my step dad's 16g when I used it as a QT tank for him one time, he tore the intake off the filter and it never worked right again. I eventually through that filter out and bought a new one.

Petting's probably the best, I always forget you can pot plants in a aquarium lol

A 55's just right for a group of 6-7 angels. :)
I don't know though, if they were babies I'd probably want them to grow up in a different tank first. You aren't supposed to add angels to a group so you'd be stuck with the group you bought. They are pretty mean fish at times as well.

I can imagine the minnow trying to headbutt Sparky. Maybe Sparky will like it!

Question: Is Sparky nice enough for tankmates?

Answer: No. He didn't eat the minnow but at some point during the night, he zapped him. :( I found the poor thing paralyzed on the bottom of the tank. It died later this morning. So, Sparky's swimming solo.

Oddly enough I can picture it totally happening like that. Sparky made absolutely no effort to eat him. He was on the opposite side of the tank and I got the impression he might have been there for a while.

I should feel really bad but that minnow was kind of crazy. o.O I'm still surprised it didn't eat any of my guppy fry.

I've heard things about the minnow, lol.
On the bright side, if it only paralyzed a tiny minnow, he can't be that powerful so you should feel safer.
