FK - 2013-08-13 I disagree with many of the conclusions, I got a extra large queen angelfish which is 6-7 inches in a 30 gallon half circle quarantine tank: 100x flow, two Maxi Jet 1200 in circulation mode facing downward 1300GPH each, using sure grip magnets, left and right corners, top, and back. Two Maxi jet 400's as power heads on the surface to the left and right of Reef Octopus Lx2000s skimmer running Ozone and a controller. Two watts per gallon actinic 03 and 10K, 20watts at night of actinic 03 on the floor behind tank as a night light (less stress which kills them) Variance for ORP probes are 21 to 24 millivolt tested in a 450mv solution, so running at ORP of 425 is really about 400mv which is one percent bacteria, no phosphates or nitrates, 'none'. I dose Red Sea foundation, colors, energy, and algae management for phosphate and nitrate, and replace 1/2 cup of carbon each day for residual ozone. The LX2000s it not supposed to run with any back pressure so the carbon bag is carefully put on upper shelve of water return coming up from the base of skimmer (above blue sponge compartment). I had to keep adjusting flow, find something that worked in a 27 high, 27 wide, half circle. When I finally ran Maxi Jet 1200's in circulation mode on top left and right corners downward, the ozone ran longer but the water was properly circulating as with returns from a sump which I do not use. The Red Sea X-Nitrate and X-Phosphate was the last addition, it says it prevents nuisance algae. I also had to use NO ICH marine for months, finally doubling dose, dosing twice a day, probably because of skimmer running Ozone and Carbon. It finally worked. Brine shrimp plus and anything from Ocean Nutrition it will eat (frozen, pellets, and flake food). It's in a tank with mushroom corals, encrusting corals, a baby trigger fish, damsel, and one small and large turbo snail, no problems.

    yet, what you have is a recipe for disaster and the fact you have had to treat for ich so many times already is proof that while the animal is surviving it is not thriving. things will do nothing but get worse, expect to lose most if not all your livestock. this is a classic case of a keeper doing what they want, not what's best for the animal.

I have a 2.5' long baby French Angel that I caught while snorkeling on a jetty at Padre Island, TX. I have it in a 20gal. Natural Gulf Tank (local live rock, natural local live sand, and natural Gulf seawater). It seems to be doing great and acclimated rapidly to my aquarium and recognizes me just two weeks after catching it! I love French Angels, they are so beautiful and fascinating.

Hi all! I bought an adult Koran Angelfish from a retailer who got him the day before from a guy who break down his tank. He's about 4-5 inches . My tank is 55 gallons (from now)with life rocks, 2 damsels and a clown fish. Day one he did not eat anything and very hyper, day two start eating shrimps. But since day one he's been going back and forth even though there's hidding spots in the tank. I know it's too small, good thing it's today we bought a 125 gallon tank but I'm afraid he'll have to wait at least three or more weeks until the tank is settled right (bacteria ect). What should I do and what could be the issue for him been so unstoppable? Do you think is because the size of the tank that he seems not even wanting to sleep?

Be prepared for quick growth, easily tamed and a fish with a lot of character. Important to try and give a varied diet and reap the rewards of having a strong fish, disease resistant and visually happy.

    Blue Faced Angel usually wins. I had the Koran which is slightly larger but the Koran was the most persistent and belligerent one.

I love my gorgeous flame angel, and have had her for over 10 years - no kidding! She was the second fish I ever got in my first reef tank, and she's been in three different systems over the years. Aside from coming home with ich and a successful treatment, she's never had anything since. She's been a model citizen, never eating any of my many types of corals, harassing fish or shrimp. I keep thinking she will die someday, but hasn't yet. Very enjoyable fish, constantly out swimming and darting through everything in the tank.

    I have e 110 set up as reef. Lots of caves and places to play!
    I only have a few fish; tang. Damsel, and dragonett. She would love the tank! In fact I saw going to buy one for color. I'd love to give her a new home!
