Putting some bubble wrap under it solves the rattle. You do need to reprime it after you unplug it - small price to pay for a good filter

Re: Angels fighting

Today they actually came out together & ate. First time in over 2 weeks. There's a guarded truce with one or the other getting "Shirty" with the other occasionally. Maybe this next time they'll make...

The other option is taking off the bottom up to where they branch and using the multiples created to create a forest. Great pieces!

Vinegar and a Mr Clean-type scrub sponge works really well, too. Won't scratch like steel wool can. Wet the sponge with the vinegar and apply elbow grease. Doesn't take long!

Re: Angels fighting

They were pretty cooperative with pictures. This is of the one I KNOW is female. She has a well defined egg vent.

Re: Angels fighting

So, there's a truce right now with each at opposite ends of the tank. Pictures of each coming as I can get them. Thank you all

I have the CFS 500 - been nothing but good to me. Keeps the water clear, starts bubbling when I need to clean the filter - usually about once a month with my heavy bioload

Re: Angels fighting

They aren't overly nasty to others, just chasing them away from eggs. They're just being nasty to each other. Not sure how putting them in a smaller tank with just them will diffuse the aggression...

Re: Angels fighting

Thanks! Not worried so much about raising babies as making sure I don't get dead angels. They haven't eaten, that I've seen, in 3 days.

Re: Angels fighting

Would it get worse or better if I added a couple more angels? I've only seen the breeding vent on one of the pair.
