Sawbwas are real jerks... kin to a serpae tetra. Loaches would probably be fine though because well, they have daggers on their face

I dont have experience keeping them with angels, but when I did have them they were aggressive, especially among themselves. Might not be such a big deal if you had a large school but I would ask around about fin nipping. Dont want to deface those oyama angels my friend, im sure they werent cheap.

oh, if you wanna wait til like, may, i'm going to get rid of mine. I'm finally moving to SF (I get 4 hours of my life back thanks to no more commute) and I'm gonna redo my tank into a low maintenance riparium for my folks. Getting rid of most fish. I just wanna hang onto them to take a shot for iaplc and then they're yours if you still want them!

Yeah I'm not too worried about the Angels bro. I'm more worried about them eating the rummies lol.

Haha I gotta get my angels gone before they start trying to eat things. Maybe they wont since they were raised around smaller fish, only one way to find out.

My angels grew up with the neon/cardinal tetra - they are about 3-4" body and don't even look at them. It may be a matter of time, but I haven't seen any agression yet.

Yup, mine grew up with some cards and haven't touched em. My Macs on the other hand, they won't hesitate. I'm sure it'll be fine. I'm keeping the macs in another tank now so we should be good to go.

Nick if you wouldn't mind with your next update, could you post some pics of the Angels when you first got them and the size they are now?

The tank looks fantastic, Nick!

Would you please take a close up of the new Elantine when you have a chance? I'm intrigued to see what that looks like!

Awesome new scape, looking forward to seeing it mature. Those Angels look great also!

Sawbwa for the win! I love those fish, along with Danio erythromicron. They are both in my "Lake Inle" 60-P. I recently bred my Sawbwa, fry are 2 weeks old now - but I'm away on Spring Break, so hopefully my sister is feeding them correctly, *fingers crossed. If you don't pick up a group, I can send you some if you're still interested and if they're still kickin' when I get back.

Question about Amanos: have you had any issues with them in your tanks, regarding ferts and CO2? I've have bad luck with mine - I acclimate them for a good 4-5 hours, make sure water parameters are the same, but they still croak on me. Fert dosing is EI, fish are fine. But I am dosing Excel; the fish seem to be okay, could it really hit the shrimp that hard? Are you over gassing CO2 right now for plant growth? Any ill-effects on the shrimp?

Hey Nick,

Nevermind about the pic request from me.....I found it online. What a curious look for an Elantine!! That looks really different from the Tiandra that I am used to seeing. That should look really nice in the scape. Is it prone to the same annoying problems that Tiandra has? You know....once it finally fills in, within a week it all detaches from the substrate and creates an awful mess....that problem..

I also made a good size patch of the E hydropiper. I planted it closer together like I now do with HC/UG etc.

Should fill in faster that way, but you need more starting plants though.
