Yes, it has. I think if you have a very large tank and can have 5 or more angels, that might work best. But 2 usually only work if they are a pair, and with 3, if 2 of them pair up the 3rd won't...

I would recommend the Aqua Clear 50 on your tank. Especially since you will soon become overstocked due to fry. It's quiet and easy to maintain. Do you have a plan to relocate/sell/rehome the fry?...

A single angel is fine (better than 2 that are not a mated pair) and makes a nice feature fish. Get it small along with your other additions. Add a nice school of 12 rummy nose tetras and about 6...

If you're selling it, just sell as is. Add "Needs cleaning" to your ad. If someone wants it, they'll clean it up.

But I agree with the vinegar suggestions if you want to clean it yourself.

I agree. And if you wait too long until the population is excessive, you'll need more than a couple of assassins to provide any relief. Assassins do work if added in time. I have them breeding in...

The tank your neighbor has appears to be the 56g column tank 30x18x24. I prefer a shorter tank myself, especially for maintenance. Fish use more space back and forth rather than up and down. For...
