You could try a bamboo shrimp, they get big and are great filter feeders. Might be worth the try since they are cheap and when they are full grown can be very impressive. If you get a decent sized one at a LFS your angels shouldn't bother it. They are a cichlid so you have been warned!

Oh and I love how your tank progressed! I like seeing how I first started my aquarium from hardscape to were it is now (still needs more time) and love to see how much it has improved!

Nice looking tank, and a good progression.

I really like the Manzanita Branch. Do you have a local source, or do you order online?

Default Progression of my 55 Gallon (Beware lots of pictures!)



Just an update! Had an algae issue, made some changes and heres where I am at! Still digging it. I also added some new inhabitants! Several more otos, 7 nerite snails, added a female blue ram, changed out the shoaling fish to Serpae tetras, and sold 2 angels.

Micro sword. I am trying it out. I have had it in there for about 2 weeks, and it seems to be doing well so far, but we will see.

Thank you, its still a work in progress. I will be tearing it down when I move and then changing the substrate with dirt and topping it with the pool filter sand that is in there now.
