Came with the tank

Well here are the fish that just came with the new tank. Anyone who wants to offer knowledge other then two big gold fish, an angle fish, and a bottom feeder I would appreciate it.

The bottom feeder looks like it could be a common pleco. I am not 100% on the ID because they are not a fish that I am really interested in.

Nope, that's what it looks like. A golden angelfish (grow 5"-8"), looks like a common Plecostomus (grow up to 20"), and two big gold fish (can grow very large). What kind of information are you looking for?

I agree that it is terrible stocking. Did the tank come with a cycled filter? Because I can't imagine how high the ammonia levels are going to get if there isn't one as the pleco and goldfish are such heavy waste producers.

Poor fish.

eh was hoping I was wrong on what was in there. Think I know a place that will take them in. They love giant golds there. This will most likely be my sorority tank after I find homes for these guys and get it fixed up.

No it didn't I'm prepped to do daily changes till I get them into new homes. Ordering substrate on the first and getting some plants set and going. This is just horrible to me. Not well balanced at all.

The only filter it came with was so clogged the water couldn't move. I had to take it apart and clean the black slime out of it.

Did the goldfish come out of a pond for the winter? They look like they need a pond to live in happily with their size. I like the Angelfish and the Pleco, but not to house bettas with. Well the Pleco would be fine, she's a gentle monster. The angelfish, not so much.

Everything but the Pleco is going to new homes. A local pet shop that has a 500 gallon aquarium. They are always looking for giant golds for it. They have one in there that makes these two look small. They also may be able to find a home for the angel for me.
